I'm curious about the 10a variation. I did it in 1995 because Willie the Austrian told me about it, but I have no idea who did the first ascent. I do feel it is one of the most exposed, exhilarating and under-appreciated pitches in the Gunks.

Any 411 would be appreciated.

(Also, how do you insert a photo? I used the 'Include photo' button and I pasted in a URL to a picture on my Picasa page, but it doesn't seem to insert the picture, only the link?)

that looks how i understand it to be. how is the gear going on the traverse? would be pretty important so your 2nd doesn't end up in no mans land

The gear is a piece of cake if you are good at chin-ups and you have BIG camelots.

I reminisce; I took a guy from Manhattan Plaza gym on this route. He pulled up past the tree and was about to start the hand traverse when he decided he had had enough. He yelled 'Take!' If only I had time to explain to him all the reasons why 'taking' wouldn't have done for him what he wanted. He was about 5 feet from the piece and it was directly to his right. All I could have accomplished was to pull him off. So I yelled "Keep going! Don't stop!" Every inch towards the piece would have helped, but he was having none of it. Eventually, of course, he came off and had a very spectacular top-rope whipper. (By the way, I found that picture on the web. It has nothing to do with me)
