Description:

Find an obvious wide crack right of RMC. Climb it to a good belay ledge. The second pitch climbs the chimney on the right side of the belay ledge. Excellent beginner climb-one of the best at the Gunks for new leaders.

5 out of 5 stars Followed Bett

Her 2nd lead of the season. Sure is a LOT of tat around the trees at the top of P1. This is a great climb for a new leader and/or new climber. It's easy and mellow.

5 out of 5 stars I love this climb

How can you get lost on the 2nd pitch? All roads lead to the top and are 5.3. It's so much fun.
