Eiger -- very funny.
5.10 Wall -- Nope.

Hint: It is a section of one of the most popular moderate cliffs in the park.

Well, I figured from the orange patches that it was not in the Chapel Pond area, but more probably in the higher country, like Hurricane or Cascade or Pitchoff.

But I admit I had to look through some topos in the guidebook to get it, and I haven't climbed on this particular wall, so I won't spoil the fun. I'll leave it for someone who's climbed there to guess it "free" without the guidebook "aid."

I guess it's about time, since nobody got it. It's the right end of Barkeater, the Celibacy Wall, in the vicinity of Yakapodu.

C4C -- nope. Clue -- early stomping grounds for Dave Bernays, and there's a beautiful 5.10 up the arete just left of center.

Wow I suck at this game. I have no idea who Dave Bernays is. Why is that?

So is it something from the Lower Washbowl group? Maybe somewhere in the Lost Arrow / False Arrow area? (based on the hint...and on the appearance of the rock...)

Perhaps only locals know this one -- it's Baker Mountain. Bernays, along with Stanley Smith and Donald LeBeau, were climbing in the region right after WWII. In the Adirondacks, Bernays is most known for the FA of the Lost Arrow at the Lower Washbowl, and Rainbow Falls at the Lower Ausable Lake. My understanding is that he was quite the prodigy, climbing all the known routes...in the winter, while still in high school. I heard he had a short career and died in a climbing accident out west.
