DescriptionTricky moves with handholds different from usual, and delicate footholds.
Up to the roof, traverse Left three feet and up over its left end. Next up to a 14-inch left-facing corner with a thin crack in it. Up this and continue to the top.
. . . ? name of route: The uniforms of the New Jersey Volunteers were green with white trim [ photo1 |
. . . . . photo2 ].
warning: For top-roping, make sure to set the top anchor far enough right (east) so that a climber who falls does not take a dangerous side-swing to the left. So then the climber must flip the rope several times as they climb.
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).
LocationUnder a small roof 10 feet left of the far Left end of the Jersey Volunteers wall.

ProtectionTop-Roping: Straightforward to set up top anchor with static line. Hike+scramble around the right side to reach the top.
Or for those with the skill and experience, climb the right-most route (class 4) of the Kitty Corners sector, then scramble right (east) with a down and up (a bit exposed).
Protection for Trad leading is unknown.
