Comments: She was probably pumped. Took the piece out from the rock, threw it over her shoulder and kept climbing instead of racking it to her harness.

Comments: Interesting climb, worth doing. It's a strenous roof, good intro to harder roof climbs at the Gunks.

Comments: I feel this route is way way easier than Obstacle Delusion. Excellent climbing with great pros.

Comments: For me, the crux is route finding. First pitch is simple enough. The first roof of the second pitch is harder than a 5.9 and protection after the roof isn't as easy to place.

I climbed what Chris Duca described, the shallow red corner on the left of the arete, because of all the chalk marks. It was definitely harder than a 9.

Comments: I know people like to say Gunks is sandbagged, but 5.7 on P3?

BTW, does anyone know if it's possible to do direct start all the way to top of P3 with a 70M?

Comments: A nice climb. I didn't like the first pitch; there is a huge loose block under the roof and the protection isn't as good as you think. As for P2, as soon as you climb the bulge (crux with bolt), start moving right and you should see the fixed pieces (2 old pins + couple of other pieces). P3 is fun climbing.

Comments: Crux 1 has not so obvious move, but is not reachy. For the pitch off the GT, the crux is right at the start, protected by a piton. I don't think that's where the splat is, is it?

Comments: The climbing itself is fairly easy on the 5.8 side. I don't feel it's PG13, particularly entering the crux which is the corner and face. C3 helps, but not that much.
