Getting There 

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 Jersey Volunteers slab. To reach other rocks, turn Left and walk roughly horizontally parallel to the base of the cliffs up to 400 feet / 120 meters (until the access to Puzzle Palace).

. (It could also be reached by traversing NorthEast along the base of the cliffs from Puzzle Palace, but this requires crawling under or around a large fallen tree).
