Scott Gilliam jams up the striking Labor Day

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Scott Gilliam jams up the striking Labor Day

Labor Day 5.10c is the sweetest route in the rock shelter area of the Bridge. Light rain put a damper on most of the routes this fall Sunday, but Scott found a beauty here! Photo by Mort Batchelder (mortb).

Angie looks for feet on a blank wall under the crimpers that make up the first crux of this stout 5.12b as Paul shouts encouragement her way.

Paul basks on the sunkissed Boar Hog 5.12b

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Paul basks on the sunkissed Boar Hog 5.12b

Nice 12b TR at Cresent Rock called Boar Hog. A long reach low gains a good ramp up to the crux move awaiting you half way up. Probably has a few different ways to do it but for us it is a pretty long reach to gain the solution hold at the point in the A-shaped overhang.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Paul picks a thin line for a warm up

Paul making some smooth moves up route with nice quarzite crimps. Rock City has many nice problems - this one had a bad landing however.

Dead in Hell (aka Mort in Purgatory)

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Dead in Hell (aka Mort in Purgatory)

Mort climbing a variation at Purgatory Rocks, Michaux St. Forest, PA. It is a line to the right of a small rounded dihedral with 2 small crimps that you pop off to gain a nice hold. Probably V3 or so. The dihedral has been done because it is obvious, however, this may be an FA, anyone know if this line has been done?

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Steepies in Purgatory

Mort pulling down on an overhung route at Pugatory, Michaux St. Forest, PA. This is a fun route with a few heel hooks. The inset shows where this climb is located on the outcrop. Anyone know the names of these? I would call this V2-V3

Mort on wave wall

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Mort on wave wall

This wall is shaped in a slight arching wave when viewed from the side. Very sweet line going up the middle and a nice airy topout. Anyone know the route name or grade?
