Jam a fingers to hands crack that arcs right to a roof with a #6 crack. Pull roof and continue up to the tree mid-cliff via Trusty Rifle or to the GT ledge.


At a crack in an alcove, just left of where the trail heads up a short hill to Bloody Bush and Wrist.


To a #4 cam (#6 optional)

Dirty, thuggish, short, atypical for the Gunks, fun and worth doing.

Dirty and fun. Fun and Dirty. Bring a #5 to protect a grounder.
