The steep wall directly over the train tunnel. Usually home only to the ravens and aid climbers. There is only one free route known but to many of the area's aid climbers this is the biggest and baddest thing around.
A slightly tricky approach. You used to be able to park in the single pullout right below the "pit" but that is now being patrolled. Parking options include the hiking trail-head on Sandy Hook Rd. Go under rail bridge and another half mile to parking. This lot fills up fast with hikers on the weekend. Sandy Hook is accessed off of 340 in MD by taking Keep Tryst Rd. to sandy hook rd.
