Comments: I don't like this route, it's smushed between two classics and this route just doesn't match up. Climb Madame Gs or Le Teton. Step it up or step it down, just don't waste your time here.

Comments: First 11 lead. Had did romancing the stone, underdog and a few other 10s the day prior. Never had any intention of leading 11 but it went clean. One difficult move low then a super pumpy jug haul to the top. Great route to break into the grade.

Comments: Yes ken r laybacking and placing gear blind isn't the best way to get bomber gear.. the crack eats gear up and its very easy to stem and place.

Comments: Good route with two distinct cruxes. Less sustained than blacksmith but the upper crux is def. In the 11 range and u couldnt figure it out. Next time I guess

Comments: Great route fully sustained for the whole pitch.you can lower with a 70m. 60 doesnt quite get u down. Crux is getting to the first bolt and its also the biggest spacing between gear. I had two bombwr cams in prior to bolt. Bring smaller gear yellow to blue aliens

Comments: Yeah I hand traversed right past that old op link cam. Its pumpy as all hell. I didnt think to use that rail as a foot traverse. Ill go back and try it this way in the spring

Comments: Wow, I found this climb to be dirty, grassy and not much fun. It seems like the climb is always wet and dank. If you are into adventure routes or atypical gunks routes this may be for you. To me it felt like an adirondack adventure.

Comments: I found this climb fun but definitely somewhere between PG and dangerous. It seemed runout above the crux but the crux is well protected.

Comments: I couldn't disagree more with you Dolgio. I've lead most all 2 and three star 5.8's in the gunks and this is by no means anywhere near an easy 5.8. Arrow, snookies, morning after, wonderland absurdland drunkards. The list goes on and on. There are actually only a couple 5.8's that i would say are tougher than this climb. This is a serious climb with some runout. If you aren't solid in 5.8 stick to arrow and Easy o and the plethora of easier, less sustained 5.8s.

Comments: It's an okay climb if you're in the area. Seems to stay wet long after surrounding climbs have dried. Runout on the face climbing. small master cams are helpful.

Comments: awesome, awesome climb! I would say large cams are unnecessary. I used one #3 and that was it. Nuts are great on the first half of the climb. Very pumpy, very sustained. Harder than alot of 5.9s in the surrounding area. G all the way. Utilize the rests. The crux for me was the O.W. section but that may have more to do with my lacking skill set

Comments: Just fantastic climbing. I found the slot for the #6 stopper but i would hardly call it bomber. At best i would call it mental gear that might slow your descent if you're lucky. The 5.7 r move is more in the 5.5-5.6 realm and once you pass it the climbing is pure deliciouness. Gear doubles in the bd .4-1 range with A gold for the horizopntal at the top and if you want a 4 for the offwidth section mid crack. Don't be scared just do it. bd 4 not necessary.

Comments: The fact of the matter is the 5.7 traverse is tougher than the p3 crack. The traverse is bomber hands with little to no feet I don't know who rated this climb, but don't get freaked that this is a sandbag special. 3rd pitch is a cakewalk compared to the traverse. Gear is awesome top to bottom.

Comments: awesome climb. My favorite adirondack route this far. Stay low on the traverse, it's easier. Gaining the crack is a cool stem move. Other than that it's an exciting breeze. A truly G climb, imagine that.

Comments: If you're climbing this route or anything using this rappel station i.e. Credibility Gap or Welcome to the Gunks, please, if you value your life, do a double rope rappel or bring a 70m! The second rap station is a manky tricam, nut and two seriously rusted out pitons tied together nicely with some cord-shot static rope. This station is a disaster waiting to happen.
