Description 

Overhanging except for the central gully.
About 25 feet tall. Facing SW.

Top-Rope: One way to get access to set up an anchor using trees or rocks above top of this cliff is to walk about 100 feet right and scramble up. Another way is to climb up the central gully (5th class).

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.

Getting There 

First hike up on the usual trails to Basilisk sector, then walk WNW horizontally along the base of the low cliffs about 480 feet / 140 meters, passing by the Immelman and Strategic Air Command sectors.

See a gully surrounded by overhanging cracks.

Thoughtful outdoor sequence in mid-lower part, then a thoughtful crux finish.Up the crack to a wide section, overcome that and up to bulge at top. Finish up over around its right side onto top of ridge.warning: The rock on and around this route 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 - (and if possible, behind a large tree)....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
