Access Issue: RAIN & WET ROCK Details
Stoney Point sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many gyms in the area if you need a fix!
Fun starting moves in a cool location on almost vertical terrain lead to a good 2 or 3 finger pocket ( crux is around here ), then finish with committing but easier moves up the lower angle face above. There is a small tree at the base of the climb that might not be fun to fall into from up high !!
Left of center on the north (north east) face of the Slanderland boulder. Look for an obvious and inticing 2 of 3 finger pocket just below the midway point with a small tree at the base of the route. NOTE : This is the downclimb so learn to reverse the moves !!
