3 out of 5 stars Slabs

Didn't really know that slabs were "My Thing" until trying these three routes. Doesn't seem two grades harder than Ringworm, but it is more sustained. Suggested name: Trench Warfare, stepping out of the shallow trench seemed to be the crux.

4 out of 5 stars No routefinding always helps!

Straightforward climb, nice protection, crux is unusual for the Gunks but really not that difficult.

4 out of 5 stars Not for the beginning 5.8 leader

Seconded P1 after cleaning Apoplexy (5.9) and TR-ing Coronary (5.10), and this seemed every bit as tough. Thin climbing with only occasional gear placements from poor stances through the crux section of P1. P2 on the other hand was a blast to lead. easy 5.6 jugs with gear all the way.

4 out of 5 stars Simple warmup

Nice warmup, as long as you stay on route! The face to the left of the corner is certainly not 5.5.

4 out of 5 stars Fun quick toprope after Apoplexy

Seemed easier than seconding Apoplexy, more my style of climbing. Thin balancey moves, but all positive holds, no wild reaches.
