Description 

Remarkably well-shaded yet open belay area; it's a great spot for summer climbing. Another favorite spot for guides/groups, this area has a good range of climbing from 5.4 to some of the hardest and tallest routes in PK.


Getting There 

Exit far end of upper lot, follow carriage road through field and past stream, to large clearing. Straight ahead, you will see an obvious footpath leading towards the cliff. Follow footpath and bear left once past the trees, trending left towards a natural amphitheater. When you reach the base of a narrow, detached pillar (Scrotum Pole), you've arrived. The Drive In area is to the left of Scrotum Pole, characterized by the large slabs of rock that provide reasonably comfortable seats to watch the fun.

Like the real Sacs Fifth Avenue, this one doesn't come cheap. I've only seen one person actually complete this one; he confirmed the grade in the guidebook at 5.11a/b. There are, apparently, two different ways to do it; neither one is easier. It's a nice gauge in that each move is progressively harder; you can judge your progress by how high you get....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
