I hesitate to put this on the site since it is relatively secluded, which is nice. On the way down the shoot, the rock to the right is a rock called January Rock. Everything skiers left is the cove.

Getting There 

Walk downstream on the foot trail in the tall grass that runs between the tracks and the cliff (please dont walk the tracks!). Take the loose rocky shoot toward creek leading down to a big cove surrounded by faces.

Climbing Season

For the Palisades State Park area.

Hey man, nice work on the new development on the Sioux quartzite!
Not to bust your balls or anything, but do you think you could add a few words about the approach?
