Description:

Climb past a short offwidth (crux) and belay. The next pitch is 5.5ish and mostly traverses left. The third pitch traverses to the arete and climb up it to the base of an overhang, that you'll pull to finish.

3 out of 5 stars A great route

A burly first pitch, a boring second pitch, but the third pitch is great and super fun. A must do.

5 out of 5 stars Gosh this is a nice route

Gnarly start, intricate traverse, exposed ridge and spectacular exit. The Gunks at it's very best!
