Description 

Climb up and through the giant flake left of Saucony. Climb straight up to the giant right facing flake to ledge, go up right and then left to climb blocky corner to top, or just finish on Saucony which is surely 5.2.

The word Saucony comes from the Lenni Lenape Native American word “saconk,” meaning “where two rivers run together. If you want to get off Millbrook fast, then you climb together with Rich Romano and Russ Clune on their climb to get out.

As you start the climb there is a dirt ramp the runs just left of the climb up to the Beach. It maybe more desirable to hike up on the left and then traverse into this climb higher up. In the beginning of the climb the small lose rock on the climb is entirely avoidable but there are some big blocks down there that I climbed on or around.

Location 

left of Saucony and right of The Block

Protection 

none where it counts
