No parking weekdays before 4pm. (Use Saltbox Parking Area at these times).
Do not block pump station access gates at any time.
Be careful not to hit or disturb manholes or other infrastructure.
The Saltbox Parking Area is a new resource, available on weekdays and weekends. Don't bushwhack or create new trails from this area.
Torne Brook Road and the trailhead remain a no-parking area. This is to ensure access for emergency personnel.
Inconsiderate or illegal parking here could lead to permanent closure.
Scramble up onto the left end of the obvious ramp trending up right-ward. But rather than go up on the ramp, keep feet below the ramp and traverse horizontally a long ways to the right (with a balancy move of two) ... pass under the obvious left-facing chimney, below the larger high prow (and above the smaller low prow), until reach the base of the smaller chimney on the right side of the high prow.
Up on the chimney, but instead of going up through its top, step left about five feet onto the big prow and up that, then easier slab to the top.
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).

Top-Rope: The obvious tree anchor points above are far back from the top edge of the cliff here, so need a long static line to set up top anchor -- or some cleverness.
