Mean Sister 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  New York : Adirondacks : ... : Lost T
Starts about 10 ft left of Coach and Mary and goes over the roof at start. This is the route the bolt was chopped on. Bolt has been replaced. Stick clip the bolt, pull over roof and continue up crack. Crux is 3/4 of the way up and crack runs out and you have to move about 3 ft right into adjacent crack. Very nice route....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
