Description 

About 30-40 feet high with a variety of rock features.

By the side of main trail.

Mainly faces SouthWest.

Top-Rope: To get access to the top of the cliff, go right to main Good Book wall trail, go up that to top of short steep hill, then exit Left (NW) to top of this sector.

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 the Good Book wall. Turn Right onto that trail and hike uphill NE for about 75 feet, then about half-way up before reaching the top of the slope, turn Left off the trail to traverse NW about 25-50 ft to base of the Wichquawanck sector.
