40 foot tall great climbing one of the last places to dry since it only gets 3 hours of direct sun
In Mocanaqua near the bridge, park by the sewage treatment plant at the end of the road. From the parking lot, with the plant on your left, walk back to your right over the train tracks past the gravel. Take the 4WD path to the right, and keep to the right, passing Paradise and the Rambo wall on your left.
Go straight across the quarry (no not keep left by the cliff band) until you reach the Library.

Featured Route For The Library
May 24, 2014
I think it will be helpful to divide the routes for the Library into three sections -- because it's a bit complicated. The main thing you see when approaching from Paradise is the large detached block. Then when you get there you discover a corridor behind the block, between the block and a "normal" non-detached cliff face. The corridor and the two main faces of the block all run roughly SSW to NNE. The widest and easiest entrance to the corridor is on its NNE end.
So it makes sense to have these three sections:
- Frontside (? or Outside?) : the west side of the detached block (visible on the approach from Paradise, away from the corridor. This section would include some climbs which are on the north end of the detached block (because they're on the west side of the widest entrance to the corridor). - . (includes Darling Dainty Feet, Nuclear Arms, Urine Over Your Head, Tales from the Crimpt)
- Backside : the east side of the detached block (which is the west wall of the corridor). - . (includes Book of Four Words, Easy Day for a Layback, Lavwelle Latte, Flamer, Brass Monkey, Grey Face, Cornflake Crack, Warmup Route)
- Rear Wall : the east wall of the corridor (not on the detached block at all). - . (includes Pine Line, K B, Stairway to Heaven, Thunderstud/Thunderbolt)

Ken, done. I shuffled these into three new areas, and assigned them to you as owner!
I used the name "Main Block" from the Holzman guide book. Other than that, I followed your suggestions.
