Description

40 foot tall great climbing one of the last places to dry since it only gets 3 hours of direct sun

Getting There

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 towards the large machinery/ sheet metal sheds. Walk parallel to the road you drove in on with the tracks to your right for <100 yards A 4WD path to the left will take you to a wall, continue right to paradise wall.

A sneaky trail exists that trends up in front of the final large building on your left. Look for a path in the trees and dirt. Follow to the top and turn right.

Follow the main 4WD trail past paradise wall towards the massive coal pile. Trend left over the pile and down over the steep side. You should be able to see the Library from the top. Do not continue along the cliffline of paradise that trends far to the left. Follow the 4WD trail until you reach the Library.

THIS IS MUCH BETTER BECAUSE THERE ARE NEW BUILDINGS AND THIS IS LESS VAGUE
