  • Description 

    Originally more of its own pitch it has since become more of a finishing variation for the lower pitches or if the upper crux of Vanishing Act gives you the chills.

    Climb Vaninishing Act to the top of the chimney. Step over the top of the void using cracks on the left wall and continue trending right up the easy slab passing three bolts up to a chain anchor at a nice stance near the top of the cliff.

    Named for Katy's nerdy professor at SUNY Plattsburgh who studies Amelanchier.

    Location 

    Same start as Vanishing Act.

    Protection 

    Gear for the chimney, bolts for the slab.
