Seasonal Raptor Closure from Moondance to After the Prick MORE INFO >>>


Supper's Ready is one of the Gunks' definitive multi-tiered roof routes, if not the granddaddy of 'em all.

Start up the face and corner of Hans' Puss. You can climb the corner, or just left of it, for ~60 feet. When the corner turns roofy and heads left, look up and out behind you for a line of chalked holds. There is a fixed wire where this line of holds starts. Bouldery moves get you established on the tiers, then lead to long static or dynamic moves between jugs until you reach the final lip encounter. At the lip, some bouldering strength is helpful to pull over via small crimps. Just after the lip make a great dyno for a good bucket, and then follow weakness and horizontals to the GT ledge and a wire belay around a tree. 150 feet, 12a PG.

There is a second pitch that goes at 12a as well, though it did not look like it sees much action.


Right of Nurse's Aid, and left of Hans' Puss.


A selection of cams and nuts for the beginning. The first piece on the steep section is a fixed wire. Then a green Alien, then #3.5 Camalot, then fixed wires just below the lip, red Alien at the lip, couple more cams to the top.

Definitely easier for taller folks, as the moves are quite big between really good holds.

Possible to TR after leading up to the ledge (e.g. by Feast of Fools) with a 70m rope. Take some webbing for a long anchor off of the big tree.

Bonus: massive airtime on each miss...

Also no reason not to go for the lead, with fixed gear in place at (for me) both crux moves.

My friend lead it placing gear, then we both did a pinkpoint run for the camera:
