Comments: The roman numeral grades refer to the "length" of a climb, as in how long the objective will generally take a party. Reference. Obviously there are people that can speed climb what are traditionally considered grade V climbs, for instance, so it is a squishy scale.

Comments: You (Donald) seem to have tagged this as a grade V? Looks like you have entered a few routes at the Gunks as Grade IV/V? Also not sure posting photos from the Williams guidebooks (on this route and others) is kosher...

Comments: "1.8 miles from the lot off 19 to Hippie Dreams"

FWIW, I tracked it a few years ago and had 1.3 miles at about 33 minutes walking with a group that wasn't in a huge hurry.

Comments: It is worth taking a trip up and down once to get familiar with the route. As indicated, the bottom is between P38 and Dennis - follow the easiest route up past the tree in the crack early on. It angles up and left over/behind P38.

Comments: I've seen on multiple occasions climbers clogging up the last pitch because of some unexpected difficulty that neither of them can communicate to each other. It usually leads to lots of ineffectual shouting until someone else can intervene as vocal relay, at least. Reference, probably the most infamous High Exposure shenanigans: more >>

Comments: I had fun on this (only did P1). Pulling into the notch seemed easy to me and I thought the "awkward climbing" above it was harder. Looked simple at first but I got stopped short of exiting it. Made it through (backwards?) after and didn't feel graceful, but it was amusing!

Comments: Great long pitch - only negative for me was the couple sections of loose rock. I think I remember a few spots of looser stuff, but mainly remember the couple of larger blocks maybe 30' from the top. Nice chance to get a close-up view of the tiered roof above!

Comments: Combined with a scramble down Roger's Escape Hatch after and the longer walk out and back, plus the scramble to the start, this can be a great goal to give a newer climber a rewarding and likely unoccupied climbing sampler!

Just getting to the start can be exciting / scary for someone new to climbing though, so keep that in mind. Some talus scrambling, a pine needle covered ramp, then a somewhat exposed climb up onto the pinnacle to belay. Starts with a little step across fr... more >>

Comments: Fun route with a variety of climbing in a short pitch. The bolt mentioned in the previous comment is no longer present, but there is a pin a little up and left of it. I have no real facility for judging their condition but both pins on the route seemed solid enough for me to trust. Fun little connection to history girth hitching the big ring too! Unfortunately there is obvious wear on the bolt from folks either lowering or TRing through it.

Maybe height related (I'm 6&@POUND... more >>

Comments: Just a heads up, back in 19-dickety-2 I climbed this onsight, chalkless, barefoot, naked and free solo with an agitated squirrel perched on my head while onlookers insulted my mother and 1000 naked women threw little pickles at me.

I'm hoping to get back on it this fall in better style.

Comments: It depends on how much face (harder) vs arete (easier) climbing you do. The person that entered it stayed on the arete to the second bolt and then climbed the face and rated it 11a. Someone else called it 11b (the only person rating it so he is consensus by himself). He provided no description of the line he followed.

Never did hear which way is supposed to be 12a - face only? I haven't been back in the years since my last comment so couldn't even guess now.

Comments: I can't seem to find the info anywhere, but I thought they opened at 9AM? It seems you are implying they open earlier if they tend to be full by 9AM. All I can find is that Minnewaska opens at 9AM. Can't find if $10 is still the day fee either.

Update: Someone answered the phone today and confirmed they open at 9AM and it is $10 per climber.

Comments: I'd imagine any rappel setup above Eenie Meenie would be removed since that climb is part of the closed portion of the Nears.

Comments: As an update to my last comment, either I was less observant last time or rock is flaking off from behind the hangers. There were more bolts with 1/4" or so of bolt exposed behind the hanger. 4-6? I didn't count.

And regarding Larry's comment on the four anchor bolts, the leftmost one is maybe 2" from an abandoned drill hole. Given the rock quality and that bolt spacing guidelines I've seen are 10x bolt diameter or 2x hole depth, I wouldn't recommend anybody running the climb as one long pi... more >>
