"LA Roof"- 5.13b

Ken Murphy doing his thing down in New Paltz, New York on the Second Ascent of "LA Roof" in Peters Kill at Minnewaska State Park.  This route was done by Russ Clune back in 1998 and hasn't seen a second ascent until earlier this week.  The first ascent was protected by three pairs of pitons through the roof section (six pitons total) which has since been removed.  Murphy was able to climb the roof on natural gear.

One might have to pose the obvious question, is there any stopping the kid these days?  He is on an absolute tear!  Good on ya Mate!

  1. Man that guy sure can rock climb! Let's the masses know when he'll be around the Adirondacks again, it would be great to see him sending in person.
