The Nameless area has quite a bit of climbing (more than 20 routes), but almost all of the classics are on its namesake boulder. Marrakesh Express (V6), Nameless Traverse (V2), Nameless Traverse II (V2) and Backside Problem (V0) all reside on the Nameless boulder and should not be missed.

Getting There 

The Nameless boulder is right against Undercliff Road. From the Trapps bridge, walk north on the Undercliff road for 20 or 25 minutes. When you are getting close, you will pass the Andrew boulder which overhangs the carriage road. Walk 100 yards further down the carriage road and you will be there.

Getting started on the Backside Problem

It's not often that you find a V0 with this many great steep moves and heel hooks. The holds are great so despite the angle it gets the stated grade. Walk around the right side of the Nameless boulder to find the start of this classic amongst the talus. Get your left hand on the edge and your right hand in a good horizontal hold. Climb and hook your way up and out of the cave through a half a dozen good holds to the top out above....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
