Cave finish. Very fun. Note: the start of this pitch is normally a little to the left on juggy holds with better pro.

Comments: I got spanked on this, spoiled by unsustsained gunks routes. Also could not figure out where the green cam fit at the bottom of the first hang - lobes seemed uneven. Backed it up with a funky #1. Small nut might have been better. They held a couple good falls...great route however.

Comments: Yellow totem basic (alien clone) seemed decent right above the pin.

We retrieved the nut on p2. Slid right out, perhaps due to weather changes. Very unintimidating pitch though given the ample gear opportunities through the short crux. Finished on Traverse of the Clods for an epic 3-4 pitches of climbing.

Comments: It was hot when I climbed it, but it felt like a solid 10b to me, certainly well harder than any 10a roof in the gunks and definitely not a 9.

Once you pull the roof you still have a few delicate moves off small holds with the gear below your feet. Totally safe, but you will be looking at big air time. Great climb, and the traverse is very fun.

Comments: Agree poor quality photo, but it's clear what flake when you look at/are on the route. The flake seems to flex a little when you touch it. Hard to imagine the nut holding a fall.

Comments: Definitely worth doing once. Has a fun roof move that took me a while to suss out but is not a hard move with proper beta. It was wet cold and damp in the cave with lots of loose blocks but relatively avoidable. You can get a no hands rest in there if you aren't too claustrophobic. Also can get in good gear above the crap pin if you stretch out a bit. Probably harder/sketchier if short.

Comments: Agree that P1 feels easy for the grade, though perhaps height dependent? My concern is the pro. It's either below your feet when you make the step up or you are putting gear behind the barely there flake. That being said as soon as you make the move you grab a good hold and can get in really good gear. Also definitely seems like the flake will rip off at some point...

P2 is far better IMO. Pumpy exposed 5.9 with a traverse and bulge. I think linking this with pitches 1 and 3... more >>

Comments: Very fun single pitch that is getting a lot more traffic now that the Gunks app gives it 3 stars. Pin looks pretty good, you then make one reachy pumpy move and can slam in a good mid-size cam before safely pulling over/around the roof, which will avoid the 15 footer Joel experienced in 77.

Last move while in sight of the chains is weird and felt like the crux to me but the cam is at your waist.

Comments: Followed a friend on this to the top in one pitch. Second pitch had a fun 5.8 roof but involved some R-rated runout licheny face climbing right after the tree at the ledge. Book says 5.5 (and supposedly protects with ballnutz, though wasn't seeing where), but felt harder to me.

From the top we scrambled to climber's left along narrow ledge to the belay tree for Immaculate Virgin. 70m gets you into a gulley and you can just rap off the end into a little f... more >>

Comments: Good to start documenting it but seems silly to list a FA name that is clearly incorrect. I would rather see Unknown for the first ascensionist.

Comments: Did the upper traverse from under the roof on P2. Pro is pretty good, though would be a bit of a swing if you fell on the one move, but not terrible. Very fun short route with some nice exposure.

Comments: Sweet route. Was able to do it as one pitch with a 70m without terrible drag using long slings and not placing much under the nose on the traverse. At 5'11 the roof move felt like a 5.8+/9- move.

Gear at lower crux was strenuous to place. I put a crappy C3 out far right, stretched up and got a nut in a little slanting crack that later pulled out after I was 10 feet above it.

Comments: Great route. Very nice as one pitch but communication with the second will be tricky and there is some decent spacing between gear at times, so I would want to make sure they are solid. Even if you don't want to do the final pitch, the first pitch is great and you can easily finish on the 5.6 variation.
