Description 

This collection of slabs and low-angle faces lies under the Blueberry Ledge, a nontechnically-accessible ledge system near the western end of the the South Corner Cliffs. It is identified by a large "eyebrow overhang" with a broken notch near its center above the ledge (called the Vulture's Nook). To either side are slabs, the right one being about 100' tall and steep, the left not as tall nor as steep. The cliff lies above the westernmost Height-of-Land Wall.


Getting There 

Access by walking uphill around the left end of the first HoLWall, or by climbing a route in that area, then walking up and left to the cliff.
Allow about 25 minutes from the trailhead.

A very large tafone is used for this step, hence the name.The route makes full use of the Blueberry Ledge's length, however, it's mostly ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
