DescriptionVariety of rock structures both overhanging and slab, including roofs.
Routes 50-80 ft tall. Faces mainly SSW.
Top Rope access: One way is to go around left by scrambling up steep through cleft (lat long approx N41.1465 W74.1673) to reach top of cliffs. Then walk horizontal about 90 ft right then down (SE).
Dangerously slippery when wet or snow/ice or fresh autumn leaves. Hiking poles and/or Micro-spikes recommended.
Another way might be to climb the route Northwest Passage
around the right side of this rock.
warning: The rock around this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
Getting There- - > See on this Photo
Three ways to get here:
a) First go to the Good Book wall, then hike / scramble WNW about 250 feet, going down past the base of two block cliffs. Stop below the second (left-hand) cliff.
b) From the junction of Tower Wall tier trail and the Good Book access trail, go steep up NE about 100 feet. At the top of the steep section, turn off Left and go 260 ft NW roughly horizontal across the top of the Wichquawanck + Nechtanc + Scheybichi + Tulpehocken cliffs. Then NNW short steep scramble (GPS lat long approx N41.1461 W74.1671) between cliffs. See two blocky cliffs, and scramble up NE to the Left-hand one.
c) First go to Basilisk sector, then around its right (east) end, up past Manayunk sector and scramble N steep gully between Manayunk and Tulpehocken sectors to a gentler part at NW end of a wide flat ledge. Then scramble N up another steep gully. See two blocky cliffs, and scramble up NE to the Right-hand one.
