Nice area to check out, all kinds of rock from TR sized cliffs to sitdown cave crack problems to a sweet warmup boulder with 3-4 V3 and under. This area looks like it had a full time resident within the last 10-20 years and is conveniently located on the side of I-95. You have probably driven past a hundred times and said "hmmm"...

Getting There 

Same as the High Voltage area except once you reach the second trail you can either head to the High Voltage and then follow the cliffband to it(10 more minutes) or you can stay on the second trail and follow it up into a small scenic canyon(TR/ice potential). Staying on this trail you will get near a lake(private property posted) and the trail will wind up the hill to the top. This is where you have to bushwack for 5 minutes heading west/paralleling 95 until you reach the rock.
