Moores right in typical mid-season conditions.

Description 

This is the portion of the wall starting at the prominent right-facing corner and extending to the west end of the face. Actually the cliff continues another 100 ft or so around the corner from here. There are a couple run-off fed lines that form there in the late winter, grade 3ish, but most folks never think to come look at them. Anyway, the big RF corner is a fine line with a well-defined crux. To the right form 3 or sometimes 4 full-length pillars. The rightmost forms over a small overhang and can be quite featured and aerated. In the very center of the face is a 3 ft overhang split by an obvious crack. At M7 it was for a short time among the Catskills' hardest mixed routes. The FA was done ground-up on gear by Ryan Stefiuk, but sadly it has been retrobolted. The bolts (3) do make it a much less serious route but confirm that they are there (just to the right of the crack) before you head up. Also know that they may be out of reach once you clear the 'hang, depending on how you do the moves.

Protection 

TR off trees with long slings, or lead.
