The best bouldering and 5.11-5.12 climbing in Palisades 

The biggest boulder Palisades State Park has to offer. Beautiful and quiet area. Room for a few more great routes.

To get to the MWC take the trail behind the last cabins upstream for several minutes. Once you pass the small wood bridge take the faint trail right (at some point this was marked with orange blaze) and you will see the MWC.

This area is beautiful and scerene, far from the normal Palisades crowds with a nice babbling brook to help you find that calm peaceful center. Nice work Mike this place is great!

Hopefully this area will get some more really is some of the best climbing in Palisades. It would be easy and prudent to set up short top-ropes for the lines on the Biblical face which has the most natural hard (5.12) climbing sequences in the park. Contact Michael Madsen for information on problems in the area. He found and developed this area.
