Description 

The wall faces dead west, has sun from about 11:30am through sunset and is a pleasant place for beginners. There are at least 6 sets of anchors and many ways to walk to the top (up one of the several gullies or around the sides).

Routes range from 40 to 80 feet tall on reasonably solid rock. There is still a lot of lichen, since there doesn't seem to be much traffic here.

Getting There 

Park at the large lot where Water St. meets US Highway 24. It is a major bus stop. The rock is right up the hill to the east, perhaps 150 yards.

I have always referred to this area as Fraggle Rock. It is just south of The Klettergarden, and both areas can be accessed from the same parking lot. The Fraggle Rock trail picks up on the right side of the 4x4 road that leads to Klettergarden.
