Kansas City climbs the huge roof using a finger and hand crack at the beginning of the Near Trapps. The gear is superb, and the route is a wonderful A1 clean aid climb as well.

5 out of 5 stars woohoo!

last climb of the day, sent second go after hanging the draws on the fixed stoppers (pinkpoint at the Gunks! spiritual crimez!). Felt really smooth. Best combination of crack, roof, and bouldering moves EVER. Most sources I have looked at give it 12b/c, but who knows?
