Sinnissippi Park Grand TraverseThis is a 160', 8" band of white chert running 6'- 10' above the ground, on a sunny south-facing cliff of chossy limestone. This is mostly a traverse. Handholds are on the shelf the chert lies on. Footholds are wherever one finds them. The crux of the route is just to the right of the red stain, on the river-end. Bouldering and climbing may become safer as the wall loses it's chossiness. Please clean any chalk marks before leaving route.
