Description 

Begin at the far left side of the retaining wall. Traverse the entire length of wall. This is an awesome workout due to its length. The quarried sandstone offers awesome friction in some places and is worn smooth in others thanks to the elements. Jugs, crimps, and slopers abound. There are many variations to this as you can use many different levels of the blocks. Watch for broken glass and shards of metal. This route traverses someones back yard near its end so please be respectful.

Location 

This climb is the entire first retaining wall in Frank Curto Park. I generally start just after the steep, muddy slope that give access to this area.

Protection 

A crash pad and spotter would be best if you intend on tackling the top half of the wall, but you can stay just off the deck if you have neither of these things.
