We asked Clinton to tell us a bit more about the route….

Clinton says, “Joe Mohle opened it way back in the day at grade 30.”

I am guessing around 2010 (don’t quote me on the date). Ed note: we are not quoting him on the date 🙂

“The climb is on the left hand side of the path as you walk into the Coop in Rocklands. I hear that Gosia and Douw were working it so I asked her to let me know. We made a plan for the first weekend of June. I did it second go with gear pre placed after trying to flash it that Saturday on the Sunday got through the hard climbing placing gear and fell off 🙈. The following Thursday Gosia , Lisa and I drove up for the morning leaving CT at 4am Gosia’s ideal. I did it placing gear first try after worming up. Gosia fell off placing gear after all the har climbing like I did the weekend before🙈🙈. Lisa filmed us. We were back in CT by 2pm as Gosia had a work meeting.”
