Give us a hint.

We only walk by it if we park in the West Trapps lot, Right?

Keyhole? I've never climbed it, but I'm guessing it's one of those cracks around the left side of the Brat?

Incidentally... Katzenjammer = hangover. Who knew?


edit: actually, reading route descs involving "orange rock" and a "shallow alcove", I'm going to go with Birthday Bisuit Boy

Trapped like a Rat? I'm having a little trouble with the angle (I remember it looking up, not across at it) but a crack into a cracked roof? It fits.

Nice photo.

Frank is right, as Dawn said.

Tim went straight up the crack, which Grey Dick says is 5.9. According to Grey Dick, there are face holds on the left that make it 5.7. I'm not sure where they are; I'd say the route is 5.8.

The route is 5.7 and always will be or else it will lose its "hardest 5.7 at the Gunks" designation.

Not putting your hand out left seems a bit contrived. On the other hand, not using the crack seems impossible.

RR: "Die thread! DIE!!!"

What a killjoy. For the record, with over 6,000 views, this is now the 3rd most popular thread on gunks.com. The first and second are also photo threads, both by Lester LeBlanc, one on gunks photos and one on non-gunks photos, with, together, nearly 65,000 views. Apparently, folks like climbing pics.
