Comments: I found an optional direct start if you want to avoid (or suck at) crack climbing. there was already chalk on a few holds so it should be obvious where to start

Comments: My guess would be an open or timed shutter. It takes away a lot of the "luck of the draw" issues.

Comments: What's the best way to link up into Shockley's for P3? I read under the details that some people are doing P1 and P2 then into Shockley's but the description says to link up after P1. which is better and easier to find?

Comments: fun climb with some thoughtful and thin moves. I wouldn't put this at a 10 if you use the left side (chimney) at the crux, I went straight up and it felt like a mid 10 climb to me.

Comments: the second pitch is very confusing for following bolt lines as there are several options up the wall. the first pitch is worth it for the view of the valley

Comments: looking to possibly break into 5.9 on trad. im just curious though, is this a legit trad route or more of a highballish boulder route that you could do on gear? doesn't seem very long

Comments: this is one of the few, if only, climbs ive done at the gunks that I feel is spot on for the rating. maybe even more of a 5.4 with some thoughtful moves at the top

Comments: not to knock the leader but in the bottom left corner of the pic, that large and slightly off shelf block is very loose (it wobbles if you step on it). I would not have placed pro there.

Comments: I agree with objectification of women being a problem on here but I cant defend this one as this seems very intentional that it was posted for reasons other than climbing.

Comments: I was looking to do this Climb over the weekend but I'm a bit confused. Can someone explain the 3rd pitch to me? the climb is listed as 2 pitches and the description lists P1 and P2 but then goes into something about continuing to climb after the GT ledge. but all the comments say to make sure you hit the 3rd pitch. I don't quite follow.
