Start near slanting slab on ground below the huge imposing roof. Climb initial unprotected, but relatively easy moves up to the roof seam for your first piece. Good pro traversing left to turn roof at its' left edge. After traversing further out left from under the roof, look for last gear opportunity before trending up right to crux section. From letter box, move up right to climb directly above roof corner gaining horizontal with gear above (crux) then finish on easier ground to top....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
