Description 

very unique because of its location in the middle of downtown jersey city. rock is literally stone blocks built into a 25 foot vertical wall. blocks a are varied and irregular creating crimps, 2 finger sloping pockets, cracks (where grout has fallen out) and large slopers. rock quality ranges from high quality granite blocks (primarily on Coles, Mommouth and Jersey ave) to chossy sandstone with incredible sticky pockets. routes, as of now are all bouldering traverses though they can stretch for upwards of 50ft. Be prepared for strange looks from people

Getting There 

go to 6th street in jersey city. wall runs along all of 6th street. bulk of developed climbing is centered around corner of 6th and coles st.

sustained and pumpy like most climbs in this area. no distinct crux but only 2 good rests to chalk up. starts on decent sized ledge and traverses right to all the way to the corner of coles and 6th....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Jersey
