Comments: Best to leave some more cord on the tree whoever climbs this next, the current cord was looking pretty ratty.

Comments: Thoughtful slab moves down low to a well bolted fun crux section in the middle. Tackle a few run out sections in the middle and upper portion of the route, though on easy ground some of the rock especially up top was less then stellar to put gear in. Rappelled from the anchors on Noises in the Night with a single 60m and stopped at the mid station on Full Term to make it to the ground.

Comments: Overall much better than it looks from the start with a fun little crux boulder problem. Clipping the first bolt with a double length runner would make it very double in one pitch, but if not finger sized cams work well for the anchor on the first ledge.

Comments: Great climb with a few small but engaging run outs. Small stopper is bomber, red camelot and a .3 size piece is also very helpful.

Comments: Excellent climb. Small stoppers and black-blue aliens sews up the crux really well. Be sure to save a finger-small hand size piece for the splitter!

Comments: Found the crux to definitely be the moves after entering the crack. Good call not really needing to bring a bigger piece for the top, as you have a good stance to place in the smaller crack and then after a few awkward moves your on jugs. A stellar route that doesn't see nearly enough traffic. Also there is no fixed pin at the bottom.

Comments: This is one of those routes where before you climb it you know its gonna be a dirty chossy mess but somehow convince yourself it will be funny afterwards. It really wasn't, just a dirty bush whack up the cliff. The only somewhat decent pitch was the last.

Comments: Looking to go climbing up here within the next few weekends. Many places in New England are starting to dry up, so I was wondering if anyone had any recent info on conditions at the cliffs. Also free van camping within the area. Thanks

Comments: Excellent climb (last pitch was ok) with great variety. Rapped straight down from the chimney pitch, plenty of stations to choose from if parties are coming up the same route.

Comments: No fixed line as of 1/15/17. The corner is pretty fun but the over all climb could use a good clean.

Comments: Best jamming on the east coast? Didn't find the 3rd pitch R rated, pro where you need it just take the path of least resistance. Doubles of #1-#2 Camelots is the ticket.

Comments: If only this were somewhat clean....Bit of an adventurous route , lots of moss, dirt jamming, loose blocks and vegetation. But overall really fun jamming and the chimney/off width on the second pitch was sick! Doubles from .5-2 would be handy. Made it down with 2 70m single rope raps stopping at the first station on Airivata.

Comments: Best of luck if your short! The moves at the bolt are super fun which basically involves making a one legged press while on crimps! Though I thought the move to the final crack to be the trickiest.

Comments: The amount of haggard pitons/cord/fixed gear on the route is hilarious. Pulling the corner bulge on the last pitch was sweet!

Comments: Finally stepped up to the plate and got on head arete today and it sure did not disappoint. Technical yet powerful, most likely the best 10+ in the park and what a position! The climb is safe enough that the falls at the crux are clean but it still stays exciting throughout!

Comments: Did this climb yesterday 8/19/16, this was also the first climb for myself on the Tabor Wall. Compare to the few routes I have done in the South Basin the rock quality was much better and also seemed to have much less loose blocks and flakes even up on the ridge above the route. Favorite pitches were the 1-2, fun mixture of slab and crack climbing. The route beta was pretty much spot on, but we found ourselves relaying to much on it therefore we never found the 5.8 crack and trying to take the ... more >>

Comments: Not that it hasn't already been mentioned but this is a GREAT climb! Definitely one of my top three favorites on the cliff. Great rests/ gear placements!
