4 out of 5 stars Excellent

But sort of short. Also toproped the direct start - it's very sustained and full-value.

5 out of 5 stars best crack in the gunks

Great sustained climbing, this crack needs to be a few hundred feet longer. The business is pretty G, although the blind placements from the chimney are pretty spicy but you can get a good luck before committing to the move.

A #4 protects the initial move out of the chimney.

4 out of 5 stars nice but short

excellent crack with some tricky pro. sustained and hard. onsight direct start with an existing piece to protect opening moves. Direct start about 11+.
Stiff for 11 A but par for the Gunks.

3 out of 5 stars Harvest Moon

One of the only true jam cracks in the Gunks, steep fingers to tight hands. Followed Jackflash in June 2007, fell on lead with Ursasaur in August 2008, and finally got the clean lead in October 2009. Blind placements in the crack before committing to the moves are necky. At the risk of a lawsuit, I'll say that a green alien and red c3 worked well for me.
