Description 

Right side is vertical wall with routes 30-40 feet. Left end is moderate with routes 50-60 feet. Faces SouthEast.

Just a short easy scramble up from main trail. Lots of natural anchors near top of cliff to set up top-ropes.

Top-Rope: To get access to the top of the cliff, can scramble up around the right side.

warning: Loose rock is still a concern in this sector. 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).

Getting There 

First go to Basilisk, then scramble up easily around the right (east) side about 60 feet.

Or from Tower Wall, walk horizontal West (left) past Dave's Wall and the Lenapehocking rocks. See the cirque uphill right just before reaching Basilisk sector. Start scrambling up into that and Manayunk sector is along the left side.
