Comments: The fish hatchery is on the left, however heading north on County route 22, Falls road is on the right. I was up that way a couple of weeks ago. There are road signs at the turns starting in Altmar which is helpful.

Comments: This totally beats the day we saw the two kayakers put in at the Woodsfall trail crossing of Johns Brook in the spring at flood stage. What were you looking for in Avalanche Lake?

Comments: That looks like a ring eye for a high tension power line work

Comments: There are a couple of bomber nut and tri cam placements right on the edge for an anchor at the top of the crack. Or if you want the anchor in the center of the climb a #2 Camalot, an offset nut and a yellow alien will make a good 3 point anchor with a standard length cordalette.

Comments: Led the 2nd and "4th" pitches today. We did the 3rd pitch from the chains at the top of the second pitch to the ledge above the Dangler. That made communication easy for both of the upper pitches. Did the 5.6ish finish straight up the face (with the pin) to top out. Great climb, though the crack on P2 was a bit wet

Comments: Trip Report from a climber who went up

View into the Dike from across Avalanche Lake

Sounds like the Dike just got cleaned out, not destroyed. The exit route may have changed also

Comments: The top of the chimney is where we belayed the 3rd pitch. We belayed the 4th pitch up in the pines (slightly higher than the birch). That makes for a short scramble to the walk off / Pine tree eliminate pitch.

Comments: The spooky flake is still hanging on, its not hard to work around it. No chalk mark on it right now.
Did (seconded) this yesterday as part of a Thin Air -> Hotter Than hell-> Inferno link up. Had the entire climb to ourselves which was nice. We linked the first and second pitches no problem.

Comments: Looks like someone has been projecting the harder stuff as of late. There is copious amounts of chalk on most of the good climbs.

Comments: I agree, this climb can be sewn up with a set of nuts and some doubles in the off fingers size.

Comments: I found this easier than "Eat Yourself a Pie" which I climbed later in the day. I did the entire climb as a lieback and cruised up it. The crux is a series of 9 moves especially if you can't jam or lieback very well.

Comments: The right hand hanger at the top of this route is a touch loose. I had to twist it back around so the rap ring hung properly. The bolt seems good though.

Comments: I'd agree it is a one move wonder. The first move off the deck is the closest to 5.8. The rest of the route has bomber holds the whole way.

Comments: If this is the climb on the backside of Roadside rock then the anchors up top are super sketch. Both anchors appear to be concrete bolts with double washers and some chain. The anchor climbers left is so loose I pushed it back in with my hand before lowering. The rest of the hardware looks to be pretty well set.

Comments: The direct start variation is pretty burly and run out but I'm not sure I'd rate it at full 5.8. Once up into the seam its pretty straight forward to regain the ledge where the standard traverse joins. This isn't a cruiser by any stretch. The holds are large and abundant, its just that they are so damn awkward and some of the sequences aren't straight forward in my opinion.

Comments: This was my first true crack climb and I am now a crack addict. The first couple of jams were awkward for me, but once I got the hang of the jamming it was like swimming up the crack. The guide I was climbing with commented that I just floated right up the route.

Comments: Fun climb, might have been easier if I knew how to properly hand jamb. A couple of awkward spots that require some creative movement. Hauling my camera up on a shoulder sling probably didn't help either.

Comments: The beta about walking and jamming up the crack didn't make this route seem bad at all. I neglected to rack everything to the left and it made right foot moves awkward, but a good climb still. I also used the large offwidth at the top to chimney up the final vertical which may have made it easier also.
