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 Such a fun climb

What can I say? I love this climb. Love the P2 chimney. I think the tree at the top has seen better days. We used to ropes and rapped off the Miss Baily tree to the ground.
