Description 

Impossible is right - no TRing this monster. Never seen anyone actually climb it, although the guidebook has a picture of Rich Romano leading it. Only one other route on this wall, but it gets good reviews.

Getting There 

Same approach as for Psycho Wall; this area is just to its right, at the extremely obvious roof.

Dorsal Fin AKA Brain Strain 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  NY : The Gunks : ... : Impossible Roof Area
As chimney routes go, this one's pretty neat. Likely hidden for years behind a large tree, which now lies in pieces at the base (cut by Park personnel). A wild line with a "bottomless" horizontal section. Update - the route does have history, as it turns out. Rich Romano, Andrew Zalewski, and perhaps others climbed this route years ago. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
