Yet another new route put up by George Hurley.
First Recorded Ascent Nov 16,2013 George Hurley, David Giampietro
Humphrey's Ledge, Geriatric Wall

Climb to the top anchor of pitch 1 for "As Easy As Instant Pudding Pie" enter into the corner crack system on the left, climb up 15' to the flatiron and continue straight up for 100' to the anchor (tree) of pitch 1 of Cake Walk.
Gear: Full set of nuts (small are important), Cams up to a #1 Camalot, Tricams black and pink and a full set of trad draws.
Rap with 60 meter rope to the 1st pitch anchor of As Easy As Instant Pudding Pie (you will just barely reach the top of the first pitch for Easy As Instant Pudding Pie) rap once more to the bottom.

A big thanks should have been given to Joe &  Judy Perez for establishing and the 1st pitch.

I have not attempted to do this, but just a warning to those that may be affected by the stuff- there is poison ivy growing in the horizontal underneath the first pitch anchors.  As of yesterday it is to the left of the anchors and as memory serves, directly in the path of the second pitch start.  It is dormant at this point, but the oils will definitely still be there.  I'm sure it won't wither up and die next spring either.... >:(

The Poison Ivy should be dead. We sprayed it in July and it looked dead 2 weeks later. We will keep an eye on it in the Spring.

I sprayed it as well...lol as that is the route that I take my two daughters on regularly. Wish there was some way to eradicate it permanently..but it seems pretty happy growing there right where you clip the anchor.

2 ways to kill poison ivy and they both may kill you......an accelerant and fire may do it but if you inhale the fumes...not so good.  REAL roundup, not the Home Depot stuff  but very dangerous w/o protection

Strandman being on the youthful side you are probably not familiar with 2 other methods; Agent Orange and convincing Old School to pull it out by the roots because while hanging from a rope it blocks the allergic reaction.

David, if Old School believes you about your way to block PI reaction, I've got a bridge in Bartlett to sell him-- it even has a roof, so could serve as a bivvy spot! 8) And it's an easy walk from Endeavor!!

I will have Jeff help me pull the stuff out by the roots...is the bridge in good shape??

There is a 5.10 something variation to the 2nd pitch awaiting the FA by Old School. There is a nice anchor already in place just above the variation. If you fall it would be a "Cool Whip".

The name "Cool Whip" was coined by Grammy (Old School). +2 to Grammy.

Hey!

Yes I sent the direct variation over the top of "As Easy as Instant Pudding Pie" several years ago. I had to hook the bolt heads with wired nuts and they were not that secure...tight cheeks pulling the crux but found the upper section of climbing to be really enjoyable. I have the nuts for the hangers (thank you David G) but haven't gotten around to buying the hangers.I will finish that up this month! The route may be a bit contrived, but its a fun variation with the last 30' being really enjoyable on all trad gear! :)

Cool Whip! I think we thought 5.10?
