Comments: My current understanding is that the steel bolts and hangers on this route are a holdover from before this area was legally opened for climbing. They have not been approved and are not maintained by the TVCC or Harriman Park, so whether or how to use them or not is your own responsibility.

Comments: I heard there's an alternate (Non-Classic) easier, less "slippery" start, from a ways downhill left, then join the main route at the end of the first traverse.

Comments: One guide source gives the classic high-ball "High Electricity" crack problem a difficulty rating of V1.

My opinion is that it is a good thing for a climber attempting this problem to be "solid" on the V1 difficulty level, because of the serious consequences of a fall from higher up on the problem
... but ...
the actual difficulty of the moves is not more than V0-

Location: New York : Powerlinez : n. Perched Ramparts : 1. Enclosure
By: kenr When: Dec 24, 2016

Comments: As of November 2015, most of the base of the Enclosure is covered with a deep layer of impenetrable nasty prickers + thorns. The only route known to be accessible without prickers is Sigrun's Choice.

? Alternate Access ? Perhaps it might be possible scramble up to the base of the Enclosure area from around the far right end of the Sunny Picnics area. But this is blocked by prickers and fallen logs (as of November 2015).

Comments: Thanks for that alert / warning about not getting on an unintended route.

Comments: Milestone for Rush on MP:
We now have at least one route public on MP for each sector of the crag.

Non-milestone:
There are still several routes both Sport + Trad visible on the crag, "secret" from before Rush was made public on MP, which are shown in the MP sector photos -- but have no route description page public on MP because:
a) the FA party has not yet taken credit publicly for it.
b) nobody else who knows enough about the route has taken the time to post an ... more >>
