Go up the corner to a ledge that has a good-sized oak tree. Climb to a prominent roof that is just left of the corner (the roof has an obvious crack in it), then traverse left and up to a ledge. Move right a bit, then straight past the overhang (crux). There is a fixed anchor with three pitons about 25 feet higher. I doubt the pitons have been/ever will be, checked or replaced.

By 'Gunks standards there is a bit of loose rock, but the route can be done safely. Decent moves and a bit of exposure at and after the crux.


Forty feet up the hill from Double Crack. Look for the large, obvious dirty corner/chimney.


Standard 'Gunks rack
