Description 

Joe's Hill is the small hill across the drainage from Leatherman's Cave. The hill has several boulders with some decent problems. I believe the area was mainly developed by Aaron Back and a few other locals.


Getting There 

Hike as you would to get to the Leatherman's cave and continue hiking up and right up Joe's Hill.

Overhanging Dihedral V3- 6A  NY : Ward Pound Ridge Reservatio... : Joe's Hill
This is an amazing overhanging finger crack in a short dihedral. Start sitting burrowed down in at the base of the dihedral, where the crack is at a big-finger size. Make a few moves through the perfect to tight fingers, then turn the lip. I found exiting to the left to be a bit easier, but you could also go straight up using the small left-facing arÍte formed by the right wall. Scramble off to the right.I don't boulder much so don't really know about the grade, but it felt like pretty solid 5.1...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
