Description:

Steven Cherry rope soloed this March 27, 1999. Not in the guidebooks, this is a name for a top-rope route between Groovy and Space Invaders (see the Swain guidebook). Go up Groovy to the roof and instead of cutting left to the anchors pull the roof at the right edge (crux). Finish by free climbing (5.5) to the Ursula belay.

4 out of 5 stars Beginner/Intermediate Fun Climb

Once again, got blisters post-climb. In a gym, I can climb 5.7-5.8. This one is about 5.5 (a little less), so its great for beginners. I think this is one of my first climbs, great intro (as scienceandsoul said) to the Gunks.

4 out of 5 stars Nice Climb

Great intro to the Gunks. A tough 5.5, but definitely still fine for beginners.
