Nate A on his first redpoint attempt. 5-19-07.

Description 

This is a superb, thin crack pitch and the testpiece of the crag. With full knowledge of the potential bias of first ascentionists, I suggest this is one of the best single pitches of thin crack-work on Lumpy Ridge.

At the base of the left side of the crag, there are two rectangular recesses. Just right of these features find a shallow, left-facing corner. Follow this corner, and cracks angling left, up to the orange overlap. Move right under the overlap then launch up into the right-angling, thin crack above. At the first horizontal crack, move left to a short crack, take it to another horizontal, move left again and make one more set of moves to the two-bolt lower-off anchor.

After several falls on ground-up efforts, we resorted to a toprope session. Nate and I both succeeded on redpoint attempts on the next visit.

Location 

Start down and right of the rectangular recesses at the bottom of the left side of the cliff, at a shallow left-facing dihedral.

Protection 

Standard rack, with plenty of small stoppers, and cams up to hand-sized.
Two-bolt lower off anchor.
