Many small crimpy holds ...

Description 

Nice route mostly straight up the face, textured slab with no natural protection, bolted, not a good climb for heavy climbers, good for practicing delicate foot placements. Rated 5.5 in Adirondack Rock, it is not. At least 5.6+ and more like 5.8 with the developing layer of lichen and accumulated grit.

Location 

4 ft to right of the large base anchor ring (can't miss it) ... look up and you should see 3 bolts.

Protection 

Bolted but .... an uncomfortable lead considering the smooth slab and the bolt spacing. Top anchors are hiding in the shade of some shrubs.
