Comments: Power through the first roof at the small horizontal crimp and up the runout face above. Move left on the clean orange face below a nice horizontal crack. Aim for the bush at a thin seam and up to the pine tree belay. Small cams needed to protect this route. A new favorite!

Comments: Concur with Bob H. that 2nd pitch has little to offer. One of the worst pitches I have done at the Gunks. Plenty of lichen and pine needles. Loose block just above the nice ledge about a third of the way up.

Comments: Had to bail from route just above crux in hail storm on 6/5. Use a long sling to extend your bail anchor to avoid crack from eating your rope.

Comments: Route protects well with nuts. I concur that crux move out left is easier than the rated 5.9.

Comments: Substituted slabby start of Prepare for Soaring Seagulls for extra value. Bring gear to protect moving off ledge to first bolt on arete.

Comments: Nice route but easier than 10a. Use some nuts to spice up your ascent.
