Lady Luck


"A quality climb for the grade, although a bit short"- Adirondack Rock
Presently covered in lichen, hence the single star.


Start at the far left end of the cliff by a small buttress. A fist crack leads onto the face above.


One large cam for the bottom, some small cams and nuts above that.

I thought this was a fun corner. As of fall 2012, there wasn't any lichen. Maybe somebody cleaned it?

climbed this today and it was fairly clean for the area. I am not really sure where the "fist" crack portion of this is, as I found myself laybacking and balancing up a finger crack. AFter that the route traverses under a roof with some face moves and a foot traverse. The roof section of this climb takes a around a .5 BD cam. After that it was some slabby tree pulling for 20' to the top.

It was lichen-free in "98 and "99. Still clean in "15. And ditto about there being no clear fist crack. Could it be that the OP was in the wrong place? It's a fact that the guidebook topo is REALLY not to scale when it comes to the left end of the GL cliff. And there are several semi-attractive lines going up there that are not in the book. One of which starts as - surprise - a fist crack.
