Description

A beautiful, clean section of rock; possibly the tallest area in Peterskill with routes in the 70-80 foot range. Home to one of the deceptively easiest climbs, as well as two of the hardest and most popular AND the only pure chimney route in Peterskill. Reasonably well-shaded belay areas.

Getting There

Same approach as for the Scrotum Pole/Drive In area, only trend right instead of left; this area is essentially a huge dihedral that has a tall, vertical face on the right, a large crevasse/chimney just to the left of the vertical face, and a few smaller dihedrals on the left wall in which to play.
