Description

Some thoughtful moves up on the buttress. Too bad this is not longer.

Start just right of tree at right side of bottom of obvious gully. Up to the small buttress with a vertical crack. Climb left of the crack (but can use the crack for holds) up the top.

. . . ? Name of route ? The New Jersey Volunteers were commanded by Cortlandt Skinner of Perth Amboy.
. . . . . Their uniforms were greencoat [ photo1 |
. . . . . photo2 ], so were also called "Skinner's Greens".

warning: The rock on and around this route 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.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location

Under a small buttress just right of the obvious gully which is a bit right from the center of the Jersey Vols sector.

--> see on these route photos ...

Protection

Top-Roping: Straightforward to set up top anchor with static line. Hike+scramble around the right side to reach the top.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
