Description:

I realize that the Dangler has been mentioned on this site under a climb or two, but I think that no matter which route you take to get there, three pines, something interesting etc... it's noteworthy enough to have its own post. It simply just cant be tossed in the mix if you know what i mean. Anyway - walk a little past where the the last pitch of 3 pines starts, traverse (dangle!) along the hand crack and around the corner, then up like 25' to the finish. This has been graded everywhere from 5.8 to 5.10

5 out of 5 stars Pumpy

Pumpy pumpy pumpy. Not technical, just had to hold on and keep going. Had trouble with the heel hook at the end. But flashed it.

5 out of 5 stars wicked

Done after ascending something interesting. Followed Noah on my first day at the Gunks. Luckily, the moves required my full attention so I didn't think too much about the exposure. Felt good to send it and it ended up being the cap to a great day.

5 out of 5 stars First Gunk's 5.10a


Great climb - not too stout, just a little pumpy. Used impeccable technique (Sarcasm) in the final Dangle and implemented the Calf-Hook maneuver for the Send! Jenny P. Followed. Very well Protected - even before you start the strenuous moves.
