|Is this the same area as this MP page ? If so, is it possible to merge the pages?|

Is someone able to direct me to this rough guidebook?

Guidebooks are available at The Gravity Vault in Upper Saddle River, NJ which is on the way to the powerlinez as you're coming up from the south.
Rock and Snow, NJ Rock Gym and some other outdoor retailers may carry them as well.
Many Gravity Vault employees are pretty well versed on the Powerlinez, so please call with any questions. We are all stewards of this new area and would love to see it open for many years to come!

|Any chance any of you USR Gravity Vault employees can send a few guidebooks down to the Middletown GV? Same goes for the waivers that we're supposed to sign?|

getting there: Go to the bottom of Tower Wall, then continue west on the same level past Three Bears and Daves Wall. Then past the right turn for the trail uphill to Good Book Wall. Then fairly flat and roughly west past the various "Lenapehocking" boulders, until you see something that matches the photos in the Crefeld guidebook. Basilisk Right is reasonably clean rock with lots of crack features. Past that is some lichen-covered rock. Then a fairly clean face with a vertical fault which lies between a dark streak and a pair of dark water-streaks -- that's Basilisk Left.
... GPS latitude longitude approx (N41.14566 W74.16766)
(sorry I don't have the guidebook names available to me, and some of the lines are not in the guidebook.)
The climbing lines are short but interesting. We did them with TR anchor on static line from trees above.
There's a 5.8 overhang farther to the L (west) - (look for chalk ?) - haven't done it yet.
Also there's space for other routes between Right and Left -- see ideas and projects and accomplishments on the Powerlinez - Beta Shed facebook group.
... GPS latitude longitude approx (N41.14579 W74.16805)
Note that the flat area not far from the bottom of the cliff can be swampy -- so think about insect protection (or avoidance at times of likely high insect activity)
