    In Jan of 2011 an awesome line came in next to Jeff Lowe and Ed Palen's famous Gorillas in the Mist on Poke-O-Moonshine in New York's Adirondack State Park. Matt McCormick and Matt Horner took a couple of tries at the line in early January, I joined them for another try during the annual Mountain Fest. McCormick pulled off the scary first pitch, and we all had to give it everything from there. Not shown is our third and final pitch, the so called "Horner Corner". Of note, Kevin Mahoney returned with Freddy Wilkinson over a week later for the second ascent. He linked our first two pitches into one extraordinary lead, and the pair added a final pitch to the trees.

      A short video about Matt Horner, Matt McCormick and I's ascent of a route we called Endanger Species on Poke-O-Moonshine in New York's Adirondacks. This stunning 65m strip of thin ice came in about 30' right of the famous Gorillas in the Mist. Gorrillas is a Jeff Lowe and Ed Palin route from 1996 that has seen only one repeat, and it was that same weekend by Alex Lowe and Randy Rackliff. We added on more pitch after the ice, the so called "Horner Corner", and rapped off a tree on a good ledge. Good friends, Kevin Mahoney and Freddie Wilkinson, repeated the route a few weeks later and added a final pitch to the summit cone. A little bit of video got lost exporting the file.
