3 out of 5 stars Free Solo

Not much to brag about, but you do have to be careful. I'm not a risk seeker, but on such easy climbs it's good to practice trusting your abilities completely. I can't remember the exact day in September, but I was at the Gunks without a partner and had fun exploring different ascents and trails without a rope.

3 out of 5 stars Easy enough to free climb if it's not raining out

I know I've solo'd this in the past, but today it was extra dirty. Did it toprope so a newbie friend could try.
