4 out of 5 stars Where was the 5.5- bit?

Nice climb, runout in places but not at the crux. Everything looks way harder than 5.5-, until you give it a try. Just before the ledge is a bit harder after my second knocked off a big foot. No pine tree at the end of P1 anymore, just a small tree and a slings behind a rock.

3 out of 5 stars Some decking potential

Be careful on the 1st pitch if this is near your limit.

4 out of 5 stars Found a blackberry, but no blueberries

Fun climb. P1 is a little runout, but the gear's there -- just not too obvious, and not abundant. Safe enough, though. (Disclaimer: read no further if you don't want beta!) Oh, and there's a pin to protect the crux move -essentially allowing you to do it on toprope, as the pin is just over the small roof and therefore above the crux - which is heartening. P2 and P3 are just straightforward, fun climbing.

3 out of 5 stars Blueberry Ledges

Fun climb, felt a little run out. There wasn't a huge amount of space between placements, but, as with many Gunks routes, there are places where it's quite difficult to protect a fall from hitting a ledge or the ground.

Seemed like it deserved an R rating. Gear is THIN on P1
