Hand-jam along the roof crack in a dihedral formed by two boulders.

If you know how to jam, it's pure joy.


20 or so feet before the Andrew boulder, in the talus field. The left boulder of the dihedral is the Kinetic Energy boulder.


A couple pads.

I'm gonna have to call BS on this as an FA... I don't know it being specifically done but this area has been climbed like a cheap hooker in the 80's

Could be. On the other hand, a dihedral roof crack is not a typical Gunks boulder problem, so it might have been overlooked. It's not in the Russo guidebook and that one is pretty extensive. The grade is also unclear - the dude that did it said "V1, maybe V2" and everyone who tried it after him said "probably a V4". It's still a fun little thing.

If someone has pre-dated ascent info, post it up, and we'll add it. For now, I've added a "first reported" to the FA line here. Like so many lines, it may well have been climbed before, but props to Serge for heading up into the unknown.
