4 out of 5 stars Muscly but fun

Required some power moves which I'm not good at. Had fun, anyway :)

5 out of 5 stars Long and enjoyable

I climbed Apoplexy last year. This time I didn't do that well. Coronary, which is graded harder, went much better. Oh well, it was my first outdoor climbing this season.

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful climb

Balancy moves, small holds - I like this type of climbs. Didn't do it clean, had to repeat the crux.

4 out of 5 stars Really fun climb

Ass climbing section at the beginning... Weird crack, too narrow to stem, but too wide for anything else... I ended up climbing the face on the right.

4 out of 5 stars Nice crack

but extremely difficult for people not used to hand jamming technique... My hands were slipping out of the crack and I got them scratched so badly that I have to pull my sleeves low at work to hide the scratches...

3 out of 5 stars Roof

After climbing in the Gunks, the roof seemed like a piece of cake... Some parts of the climb are really dirty though - apparently, when it rains, water goes down through Ann's...

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful climb on the lake

Seemed easier than 5.8, probably because we didn't do the tough part at the beginning of the climb

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful scenery

Really enjoyed this climb. It's on the Summersville Lake, we climbed it in the morning, extremely enjoyable... The rock is totally different from what we are used to in the Gunks... It has huge holds, once you figure out how to spot them - weirdly shaped handles, holes etc.
