East Coast Backcountry Scrambles?

I am looking for long backcoutry scrambles (like the Flatirons, but without the traffic) that are within 2-3 hours from the NYC. I guess it can be anything up to 5.5-5.6, as long as it's long, secluded and not steep (shoulder tendinitis).

Sherpa - Trouble on Everest

Have you seen the film 'Sherpa - Trouble on Everest', if so, what are your thoughts about it?

I have not yet seen it. As far as I know it was shown only in London here in England and that is a long way from the Westcountry where I live.
