4 out of 5 stars slippery when wet

great corner climb. It was a bit wet which made a few moves interesting but well protected.

5 out of 5 stars really fun climbing

Used the Welcome to the Gunks tree instead of all the way to GT ledge. Watch for rope drag...

5 out of 5 stars super fun climb on blocky rocks

led this climb yesterday with Liz seconding. it is one of my favorite leads yet- beautiful blocky rock up an awesome corner. i think that the climbing is not hard for the grade, just nice and sustained throughout, and it seems there are variety of ways you can get through crux sections. pro is great. i didnt have much problem with rope drag.
i see why many people stop at the pine tree ledge of welcome to the gunks to end the climb. the fun climbing pretty much ends here and the remainder of the climb is Lichen covered low angle slab. i went to the top, which is fine, but the best climbing ends at the ledge. all in all a Great climb.

4 out of 5 stars Asphodel

Lead this for the first time with Scott and Cathy following. They were very patient with me. The beginning scared me the most from the ground but I had no problem with that section.
There are 2 committing moves but i got thru them fine. Lots of rope drag on this one tho.
