Description

Less than vertical with interesting easy+moderate cracks - clean rock.
Classic problem is the "High Electricity" crack.

Close to parking.

Walking off from the top often hindered by difficult vegetation.

SSW exposure and lack of trees make this nice for cool days in the afternoon.

Getting There

From the main trailhead, walk North on dirt road uphill for 0.2 mile to an intersection. Turn sharp left on dirt road and go SW about 0.1 mile to another intersection. Go about two steps along the right fork dirt road, look up the hill to spot the crag (distinctive cracks identified from photo). Leave the dirt road to the right and walk North up the hill about 40 yards to reach the rock.
GPS latitude longitude approx (N41.1449 W74.1640)
. (about 30 yards east from the Whetstone Wall)
. . Time + Effort: about +150 vertical feet uphill over 0.4 mile distance (+45m uphill over 0.7km).

Alternative: from the from the first intersection, turn sharp left on dirt road and go WSW but only about 60 yards, until see Tarzan Swing rock (15 ft high) on right. Leave road to right and walk WNW diagonal uphill 80 yards along the base of rocks until reach base of Hi E.

One guide source gives the classic high-ball "High Electricity" crack problem a difficulty rating of V1.

My opinion is that it is a good thing for a climber attempting this problem to be "solid" on the V1 difficulty level, because of the serious consequences of a fall from higher up on the problem
... but ...
the actual difficulty of the moves is not more than V0- Dec 31, 2016
