About 40 feet high with a variety of rock features.

Just a couple of minutes off main trail.

Main wall faces SouthWest. Or if hoping for some morning or mid-day shade, the left end faces NorthWest.

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.

Getting There 

One way to get here is to first go to Tower Wall, then walk flat NorthWest past Three Bears and Dave's Wall, then past the Munsee and Ramapaugh boulders to the junction (lat long ~ N41.1453 W74.1667) with the trail which goes up to Good Books Wall. Turn Right onto that trail and hike uphill NE for about 60-75 feet, then about half-way up before reaching the top of the slope, turn Left off the trail to traverse NW (under Wichquawanck sector) about 150 ft to reach Nechtanc sector.

Right a couple of steps on the big ledge, then up the big Left-facing corner to top.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)....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
