Classic palisades rock climbing. A few really easy blocky beginner routes with some intermediate + routes. Gets pretty decent shade and is a great area for new climbers since it doesn't see much traffic (yet).

Getting There 

Take the Balancing Rock Trail until the rock starts to tapper. The NE facing wall is very blocky with a large tree rooted and slightly overhanging at the top. On the West facing side there is a 3' step up to get to the routes, you should be at golden buttress.

Climbing Season

For the Palisades State Park area.
