Description:

To the right of the Easy Overhang chimney is a beautiful white face. Climb a thin slabby pitch with good gear to the GT ledge. The second pitch climbs a steep overhang above the ledge on good holds to the steep face above.
This climb is superb, and the character of the two pitches couldn't be more different. Be careful of knocking rocks off at the GT ledge.

5 out of 5 stars I love this climb

I think it's totally G rated and it's a blast. Bottom is slabby and a couple of thoughtful moves. Tops is just a jug pulling fest. Great climb.

5 out of 5 stars Spicy start.

The first 20ft of the 1st pitch are the spicy, and contain the crux. Only had a 60m, did as two pitches. There are outright amazing fingerlocks on the 1st pitch. The second pitch is super juggy with great gear and felt very soft for a 5.8 at the Gunks. Still a great route.
