Description 

Fun moves.
Crux is the first couple of moves off the ground. Easier if the climber gets a "boost" from a partner, then can enjoy the rest of the route.

. . . ? Name of route ? The Jersey Volunteers were recruited and commanded by Cortlandt Skinner of Perth Amboy . . .

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.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location 

Near the right end of the Jersey Vols sector at a right-facing sort-of-corner about two feet deep which trends right as it goes up. Just left of a dark wet streak which is left of a clean gentle slab.

--> see on this route photo ...

Protection 

Top-Roping: Straightforward to set up top anchor with static line. Hike+scramble around the right side to reach the top.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
