Description

Lots of routes on interesting rock with diagonal features.
Most routes 40-55 ft tall, facing mainly SW or SSW.

Cool weather days nice in afternoon due to favorable exposure. Much is shaded by mature trees, so not as hot as might expect on hot afternoons.
Summer non-dry periods might have more insects because of standing water near base

Top-Roping: For the Left side, setting up an anchor by top of cliff can be reached by scrambling up around the Left (NW) side. For the Right side, might require more creativity. Another strategy might be to hike/scramble to sector Krauss, then SouthWest past the "aiguille" top of sector NJRG, then somehow find your way down through smaller cliffs and steep slippery grass/dirt/leaves - (? perhaps a rappel will make it safer).

Name: David Rosenstein greatly expanded legal access to climbing across the USA, as leader of the national Access Fund. Closer to here, his work was for opening the Powerlinez area in southern New York, and earlier the first legal rock climbing in Minnewaska State Park in the southwest Gunks.

warning: Loose rock is still a concern in this sector. Belayer or other members of party should not stand anywhere near underneath the climber or underneath a leader setting up top anchor.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2018. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Getting There

In the fourth cluster of crags from Parking, just left from sector Crefeld.

From N end of parking (N40.9560 W74.7371) by end of Cranberry Lake, walk N flat about 1050 feet, soon crossing the asphalt North Shore Rd, onto 4-6 ft wide dirt path of Sussex Rail Trail to (N40.9591 W74.7388). Here turn Left (W) onto hiking trail marked with green plastic squares. A little up then down into the first "pre-hollow", for about 1300 feet past some ponds with some ups and downs to reach the start of the steep uphill section. Continue uphill about 580 feet, then another 100-150 ft roughly flat.
Leave marked trail around (N40.9575 W74.7448), bear slight right (WNW) and bushwhack 520 ft gentle downward (passing under sector Kovalcik). Then turn slight left and walk down WSW (passing below sector l'Aiguille de NJRG) about 250 ft. Turn slight right and go gentle WNW about 160 ft stepping over rocks (and passing under sector Crefeld) to reach the base of sector Stannard.

Effort: +150 vertical feet uphill over 0.75 mile distance. Typical hiking time 16-32 minutes.
