I found this picture on the cover of the latest Kenco catalog. Anyone know what route it is? I'm guessing it is Gunks rock.

P.S. Love the tights too!!

Just a guess; might it be The Dangler in mirror image?

IMO not the dangler... too much sky above the rock

not the dangler..the formation is too different. on the dangleronc you're on the traverse you're on it heel hooking. There's no toeing down nor is there a point where your arm is wrapped like that. The gear is also not that high

Given the photog's vantage point, I wouldn't be surprised if this was Peters Kill (of course it wasn't legal to climb there back in the tights era). Another alternative is the Wishbone Roof area of Lost City.

Wow---you youngsters shore do have a bad eye for routes. That is definitely the Dangler. Compare, for example to this shot on rc.com

RG, are you sure you're comparing the right two photos? The photo attached to the original post looks nothing like the one in the second post or in your link...reversed or not.

I do believe you are mistaken. Maybe you should more carefully examine the picture in question.

<alternative answer: less respectful version>
Wow--- you old folks really should wear your glasses with your failing vision. That is definately not the Dangler. As is obvious by comparison to this shot on rc.com. Again please reference the holds and gear on the first picture. A visit to your local optometrist might help with this.

You must be a regular there - misspelling of the word 'definitely' seems to be a badge of honor

My vote - nope, not the Dangler. The gear in Dangler goes in the same crack your hands go. The first linked picture doesn't have room for gear, in the hand-rail.
