A small, but steep crag in the woods across the street from Chatfield Hollow Main Wall. It faces east so it gets shade from the afternoon on. Surprisingly cool features and steep. Looks choosy, but its actually pretty solid.

Getting There 

From the Chatfield climbers lot follow the blue trail road to the blue trail alternate (a trail with blue and a red dot). Take this trail and it will bring you right to the base.

Climbing Season

For the Eastern Coastal Slope area.

Anyone know the line that shares the start and moves right as fifty shades of grey?

This is a duplicate entry for the Gray Matter Route. I believe that this has always been considered part of the Feather Ledges.
