D. Lucander on the crux of Ambien Knights

Add Photo Add Comment    Printer View


Climb a short face to the overhang. Over the hang at the thin seam (crux) then straight up the face to a small pine. Abseil from there or traverse up and right to a larger and more secure tree.


After Easter Time Too, walk left approximately 300 feet or so. Look for a large, orange-colored, right-facing corner; this is the start of Animal Farm. From the Animal Farm corner, go left for approximately 100 feet and look for a small overhang that is 15-20 feet up which has a thin seam in the face immediately above; that is the start of Ambien Knights.


Standard 'Gunks rack.

A memorable one, my 300th route in the Gunks! A huge move with small wires in a thin seam for protection, I took a fall before figuring it out.
