Comments: Does anyone ever head right at the top of the p.1 corner instead of left?


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : c. Frog's Head - the Arch : Son of Easy O (5.8)

Comments: Probably the best 5.8 at the gunks. Definitely the best 5.8 I've lead anywhere.

Comments: Really, really, really easy for 5.10. At the gunks this would get 5.9-/5.8+

Comments: Gear past the crux dihedral is very spicy because of the flare in the crack.

Comments: Definitely 5.8. Start is easily protected- PG13 at worst.

Place a number 1 camalot in the crack on the left side of the block from a good right arm sidepull on the right side of the block, or the right hand crimp on the face of the block. You don't need to reach the jug first. High feet make all the difference.

Comments: I don't see what the fuss is about- the third pitch is the only one worth climbing (much better if you get here via one of the issima routes) and 'the move' can be done as a reach up into a jug from sitting on your rear for a no fear, no commitment move.

Comments: With the exception of the start, the gear is very good on this. If you can't handle it.. just don't lead it.

Comments: Is this not the same climb as Z-crack?

Comments: The sit start felt more like V1 to me.

Comments: Seems like there's some potential for harder lines to the right of this, if the water is deep enough there. It looks wet and would probably take a bit of cleaning, but we've got so little overhanging rock in ct, and even less DWS.

Comments: How hard is the direct start to the upper crack?

Comments: The hold that was used to clip the first bolt broke off a few years ago (see obvious dark spot directly below first bolt). It was much better than the micro crimps afforded now, and served as a much better lock off point to the next moves, as well as a better foothold.

In my opinion, it's closer to 11c now.

Comments: "rest of sorts" is hands free rest 1/3 the way up the route.. move your feet over left, and just lay in the corner.

Comments: gear the whole way, if you have small enough pieces.

Comments: The chockstone that helped everyone pull the crux is gone. Probably 5.9+ now.

Comments: This would get 5.8+ at the gunks. That doesn't take away from the fact that it's a really nice climb. 4 stars from me.
