The Belleview area encompasses a collection of slabs along the southern flank of Crane Mountain, west of the South Corner Cliffs. This section is rife with low-angle rock, ranging from moss-covered shorties to 560' long, undulating strips.
While nothing here will lure the hardguy/gal, it's an ample playground for beginners and casual outings. Difficulty ranges from 5.3 to 5.10b/c, but most of the routes are less than 5.8.
To date, development has concentrated on two of the rightmost slabs, the Bella Vista slab and the Belleview Slab. At least one climb has been done on both the slab west and east of these.
Take the East (a.k.a. BAW) Path past all the Measles Walls. Look for a herd path diverging left; take it. Five minutes of moderate hiking leads to the Belleview Slab; the Bella Vista Slab lies above and left of this.

The challenges don't end just yet, though nothing is quite so tricky afterward. Still, the line of bolts is greatly appreciated and at times their separation unpleasant until the last is passed and the climbing really does settle down.Were the entire 90' like the first 25, this would be a masterpiece of friction and technical skill....[more] Browse More Classics in NY
