Description:

This boulder is located about a two-minute walk down the Carriage road from the lot. This old-school testpiece was put up long long ago by John Gill, one of the first explorers of the Gunks boulders. Work your way up from under the egg untill you have good uncuts on its face.. then dyno to the top!

tried this on and off for many years. Somebody told me it only counts if you do it in tennis shoes and full trad rack.
