This 60' slab lies above and right of the Upper Measles Wall. While there are 3 recorded routes on it, only one warrants much attention, in part because that one has decent gear (thanks to a few bolts along the way) while the other two have none.
From the toe of the slab to its top is 60', but the base rises in each direction rapidly, so there isn't a lot of height or room to add more lines here.

Getting There 

Pass the Upper Measles Wall, walking up the East Path halfway up a steep hill, then walk left to the base of this slab.

Climb up to a short crack, make a tricky move to the first bolt and another tricky move above it to gain a horizontal seam. Stand up on this and clip another bolt, then begin a 12' stretch of near-pure friction climbing before things ease off.This is a good line for practicing friction technique....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
