Description 

The Bulwark Block is a small (30') outcrop situated below and to climber's right of the Left End Slab. The bottom is accessible on one side.
While there is more slab below, the handy ledge and steep climbing on this promontory makes it the logical starting point. If only it were taller...

Getting There 

Sitting below the lefthand edge of the Main Wall, the top of the Bulwark Block has a great view looking to the SW all the way northward to Gore Mountain.

While the initial cracks offer decent pro placement, the middle 8' of climbing is the most difficult and doesn't have any cracks. One can TR off the same anchor used for Bulwark, but directionals should be used.Climb left onto the outside edge of the Bulwark book, making a blind reach to a good crack. Climb the crack to its end. Face climb to another crack, then to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
