Might be too easy, but at least it's a new photo and it's of our own SethG from gunks.com Beautiful day despite being a bit crisp!

Yes! Cruise Control. I didn't have time to get into position to get a different angle to make it more tricky!

Now that I finally was able to guess a route on this thread (first time ever before anyone else - and without any help I may add) don't go about saying how "easy" it had to be! cool

Haven't climbed this one in over ten years, (and only twice before that), but I still remember the move I need to do to go over the hang and the relief felt once I got the bucket!

Having led it yesterday on my first-ever trip to Millbrook I am of the opinion that Cruise Control is one of the very best moderates in the Gunks! I was totally satisfied with the 5.9 pitch one, with its beautiful moves up the open book/flake and then the solid roof problem. I expected pitch two to be just a nice pitch of 5.8, but holy crap, that move around left onto the white face and then up to the next billboard-like section and some thankful protection placements... really fantastic position and exposure.

There did come a point (and now I can't quite remember where it was, whether it was above the roof or above the thin white face on pitch two) where I did exclaim, with some relief: "bucket!"

Fair enough Mim, and it is an amazing route, with arrow wall quality rock for almost 200ft!

Do you folks need a hint? Shot from the GT Ledge, in the Trapps. Might be more appropriate if Coppertone had turned sideways for the camera.

So I started thinking this one might actually be hard but now I think it is so easy no one is bothering to guess. Or maybe the four people who would guess are out climbing!
