4 out of 5 stars fun climb

Great stuff; like its evil twin to the left, this has a low crux, perfect and safe gear. Definitely easier if you know how to climb cracks. Feels like it would be a perfect first .11 at the Gunks. Few crowds, too!

3 out of 5 stars Avoid Where Inhibited

No need to avoid this, my first onsight 5.11 at the Gunks. Straight forward climbing, no blind reaches below giant roof and no tricky sequences. Jackflash must have worn off the pebbles because jams were comfortable for me.

3 out of 5 stars Pumpy but doable

I only took one go at this but felt I could get it with a second attempt. Very pumpy start to 5.8/9 climbing. I also tried the other void, but could not do the crux. Was the first Gunks route I have been on where I had to aid.
