As a matter of trivia, the first 5.13 in the Adirondack Park was Salad Days (Poke-O, 1988, Dave Lanman), 31 years previous to this ascent. The first 5.13 in the country was 11 years prior to that -- The Phoenix, or maybe Phlogiston if you include toprope ascents.
Climb the flake to the jug on top, then crimp up the face (V4) to the left end of the rail. Hand traverse 20' right with poor feet, then make a hard move (V5) up to a thin crack in a left-facing, right-leaning ramp. Move more easily up to a stance below a tips-crack in a bulging headwall. Climb the crack, easy at first, then past a section where the crack pinches closed (V7). Continue up the crack about 15' more, then move left across a slab to a fixed anchor.
