Ozone (5.13d/5.14a), Shawangunks [12:13]

November 17, 2012

This might be the single most spectacular short trad climb I’ve ever seen.

I think the route is Twilight Zone (5.13b) at the Gunks in New York, but I’m not positive. EDIT: Nope, it’s Ozone (5.13d/5.14a).

Great climb. Great video.

Nice climb. Seems like double ropes would have cut out a lot of the rope drag.

The climb in the video is not twilight zone. this climb is called Ozone and is a 13d/14a. It is on the same wall as the original route twilight zone but climbs a more direct line and goes to the top of the cliff adding a significant amount of climbing. Ozone is a amazing route and maybe the best single pitch in the gunks. Yet to see a second ascent.

Thanks for the info, Ken. I updated the page’s title and the video information to reflect that.

My friend climbed this last weekend it was amazing…who is the climber in this video?
I’m not sure my friend wants to be named that’s why I’m not saying his name but I witnesses a clean ascent…
