"New Jersey Volunteers" were different from other units we hear about in the American Revolutionary War -- see this Militia Museum of NJ page. They were commanded by John Murray (Lord Dunmore of Scotland) and Cortlandt Skinner (of Perth Amboy NJ). Their uniforms were green with white trim [ photo1 |
photo2 ], so they were sometimes called "Skinner's Greens".

This face is perhaps the "slabbiest" slab at Powerlinez: substantial sections without much positive holds. But also a low roof and interesting climbing where there are a few holds to be connected. Faces SouthEast.

One of the easiest-to-reach crags from the main trailhead, with easy access around the right side for setting up top anchors.

Getting There 

It's way out in the low southeast, in a region sometimes called the Hinterlands ... east (right) beyond Puzzle Palace and Giving Tree sectors. 180 feet / 55 meters left (SE) from the Beard double boulder. So it's easy to reach.

From the main Powerlinez trailhead on Torne Brook Rd (GPS latitude longitude approx N41.14227 W74.16227), walk the main gentle dirt road 0.25 mile / 400 meters (past the turnoff for Tower Wall and Basilisk) farther North toward the electric power substation to a junction at (N41.1462 W74.1619). At this junction turn sharp Left and walk SouthWest gentle up another dirt road about 160 ft / 50 meters. Here turn Right off the road and bushwhack uphill NorthWest about 160 feet / 50 meters to the base of the crag.
. (It could also be reached by traversing NorthEast along the base of the cliffs from Puzzle Palace, but this is longer from the trailhead, and requires crawling under or around a large fallen tree).
