Awesome splitter hand crack. Full value 5.9. I think if the 5.9 leader cruises this they are ready for 5.10's. You can sew it up so get on it!

Agreeing with Nick's comment...because in reality (IMO anyway) this crack IS 5.10.

Loved this climb. If one is looking at this route in Adirondack Rock, make sure to read the previous climbs description where it says something along the lines of "Mystery Achievement's finish is often wet", and recommends the finish of that climb in such cases. Next time around I'd consider that... Also, to make life easier, I'd consider bringing a third red C4 too... And maybe a fourth
