Shawangunk* VS 4b

Rockfax Description
A long and varied pitch that has a couple of sections of gritty rock. Start on the high sloping ledge below the line. Good, low nut-belay.
Move up to an overlap and then climb the serrated crack above it rightwards to a ledge. Step left to a short runnel and reach above this for a jug. Move up and then rightwards to the base of a long, easy chimney and follow this past two chockstones to the top. © ROCKFAX

Really nice route. Lots of gear which works well with double ropes. Felt like a West Penwith VS to me.

Jim led up to crux move half-way. Tried to do but couldn't so lowered off and I led through. Think is solid 4c move, awkward.
