A LOT of work to be done in this area. With the attention of a few dedicated climbers, this area could be a very impressive climbing destination. A 1/4 mile long wall ranging from 75 to 100 feet of climbable rock. Top roping is a good idea for anyone coming here for the first time, as there is still a lot of loose rock and even moss that may jeopardize your pro placements. When setting up a TR, stay on trails or clearly solid areas. Numerous crevasses are hidden by fallen foliage and years of small brush growth. Just be careful, and be sure to record your first ascents!

Getting There 

It's easier to look at a satellite image rather than describe the roads you need to follow. Beginning of the rocks and parking area are marked by an oil derrick, dirt lot, and large burnt overhanging boulder.

The 2 known routes shown in this photo. The first is the obvious crack going up the middle of the wall, and second is off to the left hiding behind a thin tree.

Courtyard Wall 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  NY : Z-Loft
This wall has 2 cracks that have been climbed so far. Both kinda die out just a few feet before the top-out. Fun climbs though, a good way to get your hands used to the conglom that dominates the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
