Description 

This is the long steep slab reachable by walking up the path left of the Height-of-Land Wall. The left side is bounded by a chossy right-facing corner (which separates it from the Blueberry Ledge area); to the right, a right-rising ledge runs along the base of the cliff up to the Jammer Wall Ledge of the Upper South Corner Cliffs.
The main face, on the left, is 200' tall, streaked vertically with dark brown and light orange. The dark rock streaks are dirty and often wet.

Getting There 

Hike to the Height-of-Land Wall, then up along its left edge. Skirt the right edge of the Blueberry Ledges cliff to reach the base near its left end.

Thoroughly cleaned, this would be one of the best pitches of its grade in the Adks. Enjoyable, challenging, and well-protected. The original start foot-traversed along a ledge up higher, but there is a tree root that makes this difficult now. Instead, climb up and left along the tilted block (same as Never Alone ), onto a stance below a left-facing, right-rising corner. Climb corner to a vertical crack on the left wall, then take this to a horizontal crack stance. Shift left a meter or ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
