Comments: Great route! Highly recommend doing this if you're solid at the grade, as it's pretty sustained.

Climbed it without the tree and didn't find those moves harder than other stuff on the route. Also didn't use any gear and didn't feel I would have even if I had some as the short run-outs were on easier ground as others have said.

As a climber from the northeast with a good deal of Gunks experience, I'd say the roof is no 10+. It's easier than Modern Times. ;) Feels like a 9 or 10a... more >>

Comments: The flake/dike system at the top of this route is definitely the highlight. Pretty fun climbing throughout though.

There is a hard to see new pin near the top of the lower slab. I suggest clipping it because the start of the traverse can be deceivingly slippery.

Comments: Just did this route yesterday and really enjoyed it. My new favorite 5.5's at the Gunks. I linked pitches together on doubles and had no issues with rope drag. Makes an awesome ~180ft pitch.

Felt that the first pitch crux as very tough for the grade. Gear placement mid-crux is tricky, best to just push through it, so 5.5ish leaders beware.

Second pitch has some large wobbly blocks.

Comments: There are now some bolts for top rope anchors. They sit back pretty far from the edge so plan on using a static line or some long webbing.
