5 out of 5 stars Fun fun

This is a great climb...maybe not so for the new leader. It's got some route finding issues if you are not familiar with the climb.

5 out of 5 stars Good Intro to Gunks Route

So this was the first route of our trip and it was perfect. Managed to forget my nut tool and left a nut on the second pitch. Oh well, paid off the climbing gods this day...
In the words of my partner, "here manky piton."

5 out of 5 stars great climb- awesome rock face!!

climbed this with Matt and Dorothy and loved every minute of it. i led the first and last pitch, and matt led the middle pitch.
first pitch is great climbing. second pitch is also good, but traverse is difficult for 5.3 if you dont do it at the right spot. matt went too high before moving left, and it felt more like 5.5
the last pitch was really fun. nice airy exposure, but easy to protect and fun climbing. we walked to the right a ways once on top and rapped off of madame G's rap station.

5 out of 5 stars First gunks lead

remember to cut over early on the traverse, or else it's exciting!
