4 out of 5 stars One move wonder...

Right underneath the first pin, it's a high reach (for short people) to the bomber horizontal crack 15 feet off the ground. Small pro, on the first pitch. Great climb. This is my first climb at the Gunks.

4 out of 5 stars Some thin moves to a BIG throw

Very thin moves off the bottom, with a BIG reach to a great horizontal with a pin. Hard off the ground, backs off immediately.
