Description:

No Picnic is a nice one pitch route between 69 and Sudoriferous, uphill and left from the Herdie Gertie block. Starts on a slab below a short left facing corner. Above the corner, pull over a small roof and continue up steep face climbing to a tree with a rap sling and the top. I think this is the hardest 4 at the Gunks - felt much harder than Sixish even, but it is fun and protects well. Rated 5.5 in the Grey Dick.

Some think the roof is harder than 5.5...I guess I've done it so many times...

It was pouring, then it let up. So we climbed in a light drizzle. Awesome!
