Description

Skirt the main rock on the right. Hike up a steep trail and reach the top of the main rock. Traverse a ledge to northeast (left) and reach the upper tier (The Overlook).

The route starts just left of Jersey Devil. Crank up on a good hold to clip the first bolt. Better yet, stick clip it. Fire off a series technical moves to a small corner and the second bolt. Make a hard move past the second bolt and reach a good flake. Place several good pieces and then reach a small stance below an overhanging handcrack. Fire up the crack (strenuous) to a weird move and then climb 20 feet to the anchor. Great route in a wonderful and quiet setting. Gets afternoon sun.

Protection

Two bolts and cams up to a gold Camalot will get you to the anchor.

I thought that the moves to the shelf after the first bolt were the crux. I wish I'd had a dust-mask, goggles and alcohol up there- so I could brush the guano off of the crux holds without contracting some odd infection or disease. Save for that it's a good climb. I didn't find the feet out and right at the second roof and was goofing off- and found that a good jam and a double toe-hook up and over the roof was bomber. The climb goes up-side-down there with good heels and toes. Fun way to try it anyway and skips the tenuous moves. Jun 5, 2006
