If you like playing on outdoor roofs -- or just want to get lots of practice on them -- this wall is the place.

One obvious big roof called "Proving Grounds" -- with a set of less-big roofs to its right, and below left. Faces mainly SSE.

Top-Rope: One way to get access to set up an anchor using trees above top of this cliff is to hike + scramble like a hundred feet to the right of the obvious roof and find a way to scramble up, perhaps just left of a gully. Or there might be a low class 5 sequence much closer on the right side of the named routes.

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 turns sharp left up to Good Book wall, instead go right (East) about 125 feet to the big "Proving Grounds" roof.

Two interesting roof sequences, and some other moves.Get up onto a wide ledge, then up the right-facing corner and up over its top. Next pass left of tree on up to a roof to the right of the chimney on right side of the high prow. Over the roof, then easier slab to the top. . . .
