East Coast Crag

An outdoor climbing gym on summer weekends, but a great place nonetheless. I split between the gunks/seneca as a 'local' crag.

5 what??  Sucess!

Great routes for lead practice. Exposure on some routes definitely mocks the rating though.

A Real Gem  Sucess!

I got out here climbing a bunch of weekends over the summer and fall while I was interning in New York. Crazy routes for such low ratings - and awesome climbing!

Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst 5.6  Sucess!

My first multi-pitch ever!
This is an extremely popular route but we had it to ourselves this cold early-season day. Good thing too, since a variety of mishaps combined to make this an eight-hour climb (!).

We did this in two pitches (using the semi-hanging belay), which is how our guidebook had it; I've seen it described as 3 pitches but there's no reason to complicate it.

Easy to see why this is a favorite - the second pitch in particular is great (but a bit tiring), with frequent small overhangs that always have fantastically good holds (that you usually can't see, you just have to reach up and conjure them out of the rock).

I hear High E's even better, so I'll be back (hopefully stronger too)..

Great week  Sucess!

We spent a week on the East coast in 2005 and were all over the gunks. High E was the highlight of the trip for me.
