Description 

Climbs a face and the slightly overhanging tombstone feature on the right side of Carhartt Wall.

Begin on some easier crimpy face climbing. Making some thin moves around the third bolt. There is a nice rest to the right before committing to the tombstone itself. Work left a bit and find a way up the 6 foot wide buttress. I opted for some iron cross (fitting style i guess) moves to a decent rest jug on the left. Then clipped the last bolt and desperately gunned it right and then up to the anchors. I found this climb to be pumpy. Multiple sources, including ADK Rock and the guy who followed me say its easier to stay left through the 20' crux section. Either way a fun line worth doing.

Location 

At the right end of the Carhartt Wall. Start on the right side of the ledge or from the ground if you wish to add a few more feet of climbing.

Another terrific pitch. It's all nice & friendly on the starting face, then it sneaks up on you. The wind was blowing real hard when I did this and I couldn't imagine a worse spot to be in. Almost threw me off the edge.

Cool, relatively short crux sequence that requires a little thought on the upper pillar, and beautiful incut edges on the lower section. Definitely worth climbing if you are climbing Three Degrees to the left....

The first bolt was super loose this weekend, and it eventually unscrewed itself while the last person in our party was leading it. The nut fell into oblivion down the hill but the bolt and washer are stashed in a pod on a rock at the base. At least one route on every wall here seemed to have a loose first bolt. I need to start bringing a wrench with me.
