5.11- PG13, Trad, TR, 50 ft (15 m),  Avg: 3 from 2 votes
FA: TR - Dave Barone, 09/17/08
New York > Powerlinez > b. The Swath > Stockade Wall


Thoughtful crux sequence, and lots of other interesting moves.

Start on the left of the two shallow corners, up through its curve, and on to the top.

warning: The rock around this route and sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.


To the leff of the three cracks on the main (left-side) wall are two shallow left-facing inside corners, which start roughly vertical and then curve left -- the left one curves to over to nearly horizontal.


normal NY style Trad rack, with emphasis on small pieces.

  5.11- PG13
[Hide Comment] Start is just a few feet left of the three left-leaning cracks (the cracks of Once Was Choss But Now Is Found and Dave's A-Peelin')

First fifteen feet are pretty tricky to work out, especially finding a less strenuous way to do the crux move. Above that is fun climbing, just not so hard. (If only it were longer).

We worked it on Top-Rope with a long static line to a big rock perched on a wide ledge behind and about fifteen feet higher than the main ledge at the top of the route. Jun 18, 2014
