Description 

The Descent Trail area includes the Falling boulder, and the west face of the Practice Face (Orvie). Access to the top of the Practice Face for top ropes is also off the Descent Trail.

The Orvie face is on the left end of the Practice Face. Super beta intensive, might as well be taped. Basically there is a set of anchors at the top, get there however you can. I've included route names that are found in Rock Climbing New Jersey(A Falcon Guide; Nick 7 Sloane), but the descriptions are from my experience.


Getting There 

Floow the marked trail until almost to the bottom of the cliff. The Falling Boulder is adjacent the trail and the west end of the Pracice Face will appear shortly thereafter.

Orvie is the first bit of climbing you encounter when you use the obvious descent trail you encounter when you head straight from the parking lot to the cliffs. There are a few ways to get to the top of this face(and practice face), but I find the easiest is to scramble up the class 4 gully just to the left of it.
