Start at the far left of the boulder on a jug/sloper, traverse right, and exit at the right end of the roof. Use slopers and hand jams under the roof, and either thin feet or heel hooks.


Halfway through the Hogs Pen, right off the trail, is a 5' high boulder about 20' wide, with a roof that looks like it might slip right off


pad or two

All I am saying is ... And further more ..... ANY THING UNDER 5.12...
Do I Have To Spell It Out For YOU ...

Gus Neff ,and about a dozen or so other,Local kids climbed mostly every thing around all the Denville lakes
Including sitting starts and rock in random grandmotherÂ’s backyard's back in the 80's.
I respect that you are doing cool stuff,Panther valley? The white rock thats left by the quarry near Vernon valley/Great Gorge and about another half dozen old quarry type SPOTS. There are routes along the train tracks from Edison to Morristown and no one has ever climbed on the palisades. really thats just not wanting to know on your end.
The long history that you may not know includes the
Names of Shockley in the 50's Benisch in the 60's Kolocotronis in the70's all of them climbed
at the highest levels achieved today. After the mid 70's the stuff was climbed with and without sticky rubber, was often cleaned before any and every ascent and problems went unreported and many more unrepeated for ten years; When in the late 90's Jeff Lucas and his crowd up ended the casual unspoken arrangement between local land owner/managers re freeholders in NJ. Things got done then areas were closed. Before climbing gyms, 20yrs ago, We all climbed every inch of vertical stone -like substance that we could find. Bridges, buildings anything and every rock was climbed ; some of the best climbers in the world traveled from the gunks to sample the stones you are throwing dynos on. THE POINT IS THAT IT IS your 1ST ASCENT,THE 1ST KNOWN ASCENT,NOT VERY LIKELY THAT IT IS THE 1ST EVER ASCENT.Not that it means all that much, have fun
Climb, climb smart ,climb safe , climb forever!>OO< not ment to piss you off but the old dogs are geezers who still climb May 17, 2014
