Shaded belay area, partially shaded routes, completely open top of cliff. Enterprise Wall has one of the few double-bolted anchors in Peterskill - but it's not in the right place for all the routes, and setting up more than one route on the bolts is unwise. There are plenty of placement opportunities for gear.
Long way: exit lower parking lot to the left, follow carriage road with fence on your right, turn right onto blue/yellow-blazed trail at end of fence, follow trail past Breakfast Wall to small clearing. Continue to follow blazed trail along bottom of cliff. When you reach a slabby face with a dihedral on the right, and a cul-de-sac just past, you've arrived.
Short way: Exit upper parking lot at the far side, walk through meadow and past stream on carriage road, come to large clearing with information sign on left. Turn left and follow carriage road to marked access path (blue/yellow blaze) on right. Follow access path with cliff on left. When you reach a cul-de-sac with a dihedral and slabby face just past, you've arrived.
Approach time: Long way - 10 minutes, short way - 5 minutes.

A "slab" climb with a very tricky start; I've seen 5.5 leaders back off this route, as the starting move isn't well-protected. I've also seen several people continue straight up the face, while the route actually goes up and left; you can wander into some distinctly not 5.4 territory if you're not careful. There's a shelf with some greenery in it, nearly at the top; you want to stay left of that....[more] Browse More Classics in NY
