Description 

Slab about 30-40 feet tall.
Faces roughly South.
Friendly base area.

Top-Rope: One way to get access to set up an anchor using trees above top of this cliff is to scramble up around the right side, with some thoughtful somewhat exposed moves.

warning: The rock around this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from 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 

From the junction (lat long approx N41.1452 W74.1667) of Tower Wall tier trail and the Good Book access trail, go steep up NorthEast about 100 feet, and after the top of the steep section continue on the trail ENE gentle about 330 feet. Then where the main trail starts curving sharp left up to Good Book wall, see the "Fairy Tales" slab.
