Closest area to the trailhead. The "swath" is the zone where all the trees were cleared out to make way for the electric power line.

The Top-Rope crags are out in the open, along with some bouldering rocks. Some more bouldering rocks in the lower trees.

Climbers love it for the sunshine. So do the pricker / thorn bushes.

Getting There 

From the main trailhead hike N gentle uphill on the dirt road about 1000 feet to a junction with another dirt road. Turn sharp Left and go WSW about 500 feet to a fork in the road. The Swath rocks are above and right from the right fork road (which is the Boulder Road). To find your problems, either head right uphill directly from the fork intersection, or first hike up steep on the right fork dirt road and soon exit right off that.

Zetastein 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b PG13  New York : Powerlinez : ... : Stockade Wall
A wandering route, but with fun moves and great climbing. Start just right of some rock that seems to "flow" in a downward arc towards the ground. Step up and move left across this "flow" on small and insecure hands until you reach a jug on the left hand side. Head up to the ledge from the jug and shuffle yourself to the right. Head up and left again on even more insecure and sloping holds and top out. You've just made a Z with your rope!...[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
