Doubling up on Double Clutch (5.9+)

Average Rating = 3.93/5 Doubling up on Double Clutch (5.9+)

Doug Widdis (polarwid) on Double Clutch. This is a short climb in the Doug's Roof area. The hard moves are getting to the lip and pulling up. You are only about 15 feet up with your hands so it's not a death fall. Once I pulled the roof, however, I wa

Average Rating = 2.83/5 Trying not to take the Nosedive (5.10)

Doug Widdis (polarwid) on Nosedive in the Shawangunks. I am just passing the crux first roof, which protects very well. The scary climbing comes up above where you have to layback an overhanging crack and can't hang to place pro. Photo by Mike Cono.

Average Rating = 4.39/5 Doing Shockley's the Vulgarian Way!

Doug Widdis (polarwid) on the roof of Shockley's Ceiling (5.6) in the Gunks wearing only a swami belt and boots. Dick Williams (one of the original Vulgarians) climbed Shockley's in the 60's in the nude just to shock the crowd at the hairpin turn. Inspired by the famous poster of this feat, I decided to repeat the climb the TRADITIONAL WAY!!!

Polarwid high on Cocaine(5.10+)

Average Rating = 3.94/5 Polarwid high on Cocaine(5.10+)

This is my favorite route on the drug wall. Protected by 6 drilled angles over 120 feet of climbing it has some excitement, but the crux friction moves are very well protected. I am just completing the crux traverse when my brother Dan took this photo.
