Description

Lots of interesting moves at the difficulty level. Too bad it's not much longer.

Start at the right side of the gully slope. Diagonal up left on vegetation + dirt + rocks, almost to a narrow dirt gully. Get on continuous rock (a bit smooth at first) just below right of that gully.

Roughly straight up on the rock to the right side of the narrow gully -- look carefully and perhaps weave around some for positive holds - (but avoid stepping in the dirty gully itself). About ten feet below the top, step left across the gully onto more rock, then up that side to the top.

Hardest moves are near the top, so make sure you can down-climb anything you climb up.

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

A wide gully slope at the right end of the Kitty Corners rocks, immediately Left of the Jersey Volunteers sector.
