Regarding driving to the area. Be mindful that Hollywood road is actually a loop that connects with Rd 28 twice. If you just plug in the intersection to your GPS you will wind up at the second intersection a few miles past the pulloff noted in Adiondack Rock and here on MP.
Regarding the cliff. There is huge potential but it certainly needs to see some traffic as many of the climbs are being reclaimed by nature with lichen, saplings, moss,etc. Up above the first 20-60 feet the rock is cleaner on many climbs if you are willing to traverse in from a lower section.
Worth the trip alone for Branches and Zig Zag with the off-width section that gobbles up your limbs!
