Wade For It, WI4
« on: January 31, 2014, 08:24:21 AM »

I spotted this particular line several years ago but never had the opportunity to hike out to it due to a tricky river crossing. Cold temps made the crossing much more reasonable but we both dunked boots on the way in and out...thus the name. Here are the deets. Will post two more routes in the next week:

Wade For It, WI4
FA: Chris Graham and Dan Lunt, January 30. 2014

Steep start leads to a sustained near vertical line 50-60 feet in length. Rests can be found on the right side but brittle ice will more than likely force you back out to the softer, steeper line. Climb the flow for 50-60 feet and belay from trees at a wonderful and level stance. Rappel from trees or walk off to gully on climber's right. One 60M rope will just get you down.

I will post directions when I post the next two climbs but it is essentially located on the east facing banks of a the hill directly opposite the Hutman's Path off of Route 16 going north. Pullout is exactly 3.3 miles north of the wildcat service station (Sunoco) on the left. Walk carefully across the Ellis River and bushwack northwest through woods following obvious spine and skidder path past two rectangular boulders heading uphill the whole way. I have GPS coordinates and compass course (will post soon). There are trespassing signs located just off the pullout. Please be discrete with your activities and park off to the side leaving room for parking for the folks across the street should they need an overflow lot. Mid-week should be fine!

I am assuming these lines have not been climbed or at least not been recorded to my knowledge. They are really great climbs and worth the 10-15 minute bushwack and river crossing.

I guess "Old School" is back, like he really could ever leave.
Nice route Chris maybe you could provide a nice video of the climb.
Thanks
