Location

From Rines Hill Rd park near an area of the Knight's Pond gate( don't block the road), walk about 300' to remnants of a wooden gate on the left, follow cairns/tape for 15 minutes to the main wall of the cliff- a prominent dike system is straight ahead. Follow the cliff right past a white ascent/descent rope for about 30'. This is called the Pre-K wall -the next 5 climbs are a mix of horizontals, cracks,slabs and blocks. All short, but sweet with good positioning. A great introduction and/ or honing skills. We encourage any and all brushing, both here and on the main wall ,where several more routes are being developed. The approach trail has been Ok'ed by the landowner, so access is NOT an issue!
