Comments: Aghetie is correct about needing to protect the crux (thin flaring tips crack before the square ceiling) from below. Unless you had small offset cams/nuts nothing will seat in the crack leaving you to commit to a fall if you blow the moves to gain the top of the right facing corner. I convinced myself a #4 BD nut was good enough and wound up taking a 20 footer onto the ledge bruising my calcaneus pretty badly. Definitely going to track down a #3 offset mastercam once I heal up.

Comments: I agree with the above comments. Although there is one SMC hanger at the first two belays the other is a larger Petzl (although far from a new addition it provides some greater peace of mind). The moves are indeed fun but without ballnutz or similar tiny gear the first two pitches seem closer to PG, especially since the majority of available placements are behind flakes which sound less than solid.

Comments: Regarding driving to the area. Be mindful that Hollywood road is actually a loop that connects with Rd 28 twice. If you just plug in the intersection to your GPS you will wind up at the second intersection a few miles past the pulloff noted in Adiondack Rock and here on MP.

Comments: It's really pretty mellow till the last 5 feet before it goes to a lower angle. Worth the time.

Comments: In the new ADK guide by Hass this has been bumped up to a 9 (although I consider myself an 8 climber so I think it must be an 8 because I was able to haul myself up. It's a great climb and a lot of fun allowing for practice of stemming or lieback if you're so inclined.
