Description:

This is a destination climb. A classic with two great pitches. The last pitch has three bolts on beautiful white rock, and the last bolt protects the hight-related crux. The first ascent party placed bolts on rappel. Start scrambling up left about 20 feet on ledges from base of huge left-facing corner of Easy Verschneidung. Pitch 1: 5.6 PG 100 ft. Climb up face past right-facing corners and flakes to the small overhang, move left and up the bulging face (crux) to the GTLedge. Pitch 2: 5.8 PG 100 ft. Pass notch in overhang (5.7 PG) to a stance. Continue up face passing two bolts to the final bolt in the short bulging headwall. Work up this (crux) to bolt anchor/rap station. Beautiful climb. Really nice low angle face, a rarity in the Gunks.

Descent Options:

Rap off using bolted anchors on top of each pitch.

5 out of 5 stars Nice warm up this crisp fall morning

P2 crux was super easy today. The rock was really "grippy"

5 out of 5 stars fun

It's always unnerving to get into the white rock. But it usually works out pretty well.

3 out of 5 stars Fun, short balancy crux move.

The first pitch is a great 5.6. Flashed the second pitch, went left at the bolt. Hint: If going left at the bolt feels hard, you are doing the crux wrong. Crux is very well protected.

5 out of 5 stars always fun

Arrow is always fun to climb. P1 is steep and fun. P2 is always a puzzle. left or right?
