Start at a left-leaning ramp, and follow an obvious seam. Wander up face to the top. There is a small ledge about half-way up, making this a good route on which to practice "multipitch"....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York

One of my favorite PK routes. Awkward and balancey down low, then devious and technical in the upper half. A good 5.6 testpiece.

I lead this route yesterday. I found the pro in the second half at least suspicious. There are a lot of pebbles in the rock matrix so its difficult to find a good spot, in particular because you have to find them in not so convenient climbing positions. I'm quite unexperienced with trad climbing so other climbers might do better. I would certainly not lead route this again, it felt really dangerous.

since I'm fairly new to the outdoor climbing world can anyone elaborate on why there are no routes to the right of Genuflect? It seems there are some pretty substantial crack systems running up the wall. Maybe I can answer my own question by saying the name of the wall is Choss wall so loose stone, poor protection, poor top rope anchor options up top? From the one photo it looks ok but a photo doesn't tell the whole story and I'd like to hear from some of the more experienced cats so I don't kill myself trying to climb something I shouldn't. Thanks.

There's 2 or 3 routes in the 5.6 range on that wall to the right of Genuflect. I especially like the one that's 20ft to the right and starts as a pair of cracks up the steep lower face. Nice juggy, secure climbing through there.
