Description:

50 yards left of Loose Goose is a clean white slab. Climb up and left to a corner and then up to a small belay under a roof. Climb the corner above to the big ledge. Pitch 3 is one of the best easy pitches in the Gunks. Climb the big right facing corner and then make a VERY exposed traverse right across the face to the top.

4 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the left exit off P4

So much fun and exposure for a 5.fun climb. I highly recommend the left exit at the top of the last pitch. Ignore the rings and slings on the tree unless you have two ropes. Otherwise you will rap to a really mangy secondary rappel.

5 out of 5 stars Always fun

Nice climb. I would not call this a 5.3. A 5.3 leader might be very unhappy in places. P2 is a nice steep, juggy corner up to a nice steep face. Lots of fun.

4 out of 5 stars Did the 5.7 exit

Be warned that once you exit the 5.7 moves, you are facing a slab covered in lichen. not a ton of gear on the slab.

5 out of 5 stars How many times can you do this in one week?

Well, 3x for me! Bett and I climbed it today. She lead P1/P3 and I took the evens. Each pitch is fun and very different from the last. Bett felt that it's much harder than a 5.3 and I agree.

5 out of 5 stars Did it again today

Mitch and I swapped leads. THis time I got the money pitch. So much fun. I would NOT call this a 5.3. Rude awakening for a 5.3 leader. You can run P1/P2 together. Bring a micro nut for the beginning of P2 (before you swing around into the corner). P4 is just crazy fun. Great exposure, great gear. Too bad it ends in a grassy gully.
