This is a two pitch sport climb. The bolts are spaced closer than in France, shiny new. We climbed this after Diagonal and only had time for the first pitch. Maybe someone can add on info about the rest of the route.

P1: 5.10d - excellent steep face climbing on crimpy holds over bulges. Crux at 4th bolt.

P2: 5.11c?


Bolted line 10m left of Diagonal, starts next to a large birch tree.


P1: 8 bolts + anchor

This route was once called "Shining Path", a name invented by locals due to lack of FA info. Since the first edition of Adirondack Rock, the FAers came forward. The correct name is Mission to Mars.

P1 is quite good. P2 is 5.11c (or so I thought) with some friable rock. There is a third aid pitch and a high anchor.
