Description

Unique interesting sequence on upper section arete. Also interesting moves on lower section face. Too bad it has this grassy walk in the between them.

. . Together with the route to its left, lots of interesting climbing for setting up one top-rope.

Start at lower right edge of face. Rising traverse left to below rock perched on top of face, then up to finish right of perched rock. Next walk up about 30 feet to another face to which forms left edge of R-facing corner/crack on left side of gully.

Up the right edge of that face to its top -- Using the low section of the crack (which is below right from the edge of the face) for footholds is OK, but not the face to right of that crack. Stop at top of that face, or ...
to reach top of cliff, walk a couple of steps and up sloping rock about four feet left of broken crack in its center.

warning: Loose rock is still a concern here. Belayer or other members of party should not stand anywhere near 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

Find the wide dirty gully which forms the left edge of the low left section of the main rock of Manayunk. Spot left-facing corner / wide crack on which forms left side of the top section of that gully. Next spot small eight-foot wall down below left from that crack -- on the left side of lower part of gully. This route is on a 15-20 ft high face "around the corner" beyond down left from below from that.
