Looking up the route through the arboreal angst.


A really fun lead with a cool roof pull near the end. Great practice for your next trip to the Gunks!

Start with face climbing up to an overlap. Surmount this feature and trend left to follow a somewhat ill-defined crack system up the face to a blocky orange roof split by a big crack near the top. Pull the well-protected roof on great holds and continue to the top.


Starts about 50' right of Yum Yum Tree. Rap from anchors.


Standard rack; be ready with a medium cam or two to protect the roof move. Bolted anchors.
