A Sunday Afternoon

June 16, 2016

I made it up to the Gunks for a few hours on June 12th and climbed with Brian Todd. We decided to try out a two overlooked gems. We got on Last Frontier and Bragg-Hatch. Both climbs were relatively short with their own crux sections.  Both had distinctive sections but were of lower quality once you’re 35-40 feet up.  Last Frontier takes some creative problem solving to get out of the wide crack. a #4 in the back of the corner was nice, a .75-2 were most helpful. For Bragg-Hatch, some small wires, a Yellow C3, Red C3 and blue-green aliens at think crack were helpful. I was able to fish in a pretty good red offset nut before pulling into the low roof.  After the finger traverse right, use both cracks to make a committing stand up to the fat horizontal that takes a #2.
