3 out of 5 stars devious little climb

fun, a little bit scary since it feels like you are way out from your last pro. Alas, when I looked at my placements from the ground, I was very well protected. A little fiddly to get solid pro around the bulge

3 out of 5 stars Fun climb

If you go right when crack ends, it's easier. It's 9ish straight up.

Flash Flash ascent by: crw5074 on 2013-07-07 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars A short pumpy crack.

Like many Gunks cracks, only a few jams. Pumpy. Good gear, small where crack peters out and you have to move around the arete. 5.9-.
