Buttermilk? When did you climb it? If I'm right, I've seen climbers groveling up that crack in years past.

It's not Buttermilk, but I think I know the route you mean...the pitch just left of the last pitch on Buttermilk looks very similar but has a smaller roof and a steeper intro.

The route in question was climbed last year and isn't too far from Buttermilk.

That narrows it down. In the meantime, here's an easy one:

Chris, you really have to check out the roof crack on Viola Falls.

Kinda short, but nowhere near Viola or Buttermilk Falls:

Is that at Moores Bridge around the corner from the steeper climbs on the right side(furthest away from the NEI 3 gully on the left)?

Hint? Adirondacks, somewhere in Avy pass?

Not Moores. Though last March a similarly steep pillar showed up briefly around that west side. It was much thinner than this one though and we only TR'ed it. I wish I took a photo of it - it was just a couple inches thick at its base.

Honestly, I don't know why you guys think every photo I post is something at Moores Bridge. Really, I don't understand. wink

PS this one isn't in the guidebook, so we're looking for a location rather than a route name. And I don't know if it forms like this regularly. So maybe "you had to be there" (last year).

Too much going on... OK, the one that I posted is on the left side of Wildcat Falls next to tier 1 or 2 I can't remember. May have been a FA I don't know.

AOC, you said an easy one? I don't know Adarondike? or something in Smuggs?

Mike R's post, it kind of look like Chapel Pond Canyon. On the way down to Positive Reinforcement???
