Description 

This is the tall, mostly grey face, with many horizontals that resembles the Trapps. The left end of it starts 7 ft above a large rectangular boulder. There are about 8 distinct lines that mostly follow vertical cracks/grooves and 3 bolted anchors at the top, though these may not be in the spots that get the most traffic. Two are on the left, one ledge system below the top. The other is on top at the right end.

If you are on top rope climbing toward the bolts, the top is very thin. There are good holds to the left in a triangular recess, but you'd be at risk of swinging from there.The start was a bit nervy, as you step across from the block to the face....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York

There are now 6 pairs of bolts atop this face. If you're TR'ing, static rope is still needed for the 5.7+ that I posted a photo of, and also for the lines at the far right end of the face. There are non-pine trees in these two spots so please don't anchor off the pitch pines.
