Description 

The Cascade Lakes area is home to about 5 Adirondack crags. This mountain pass is one of the most beautiful in the Adirondacks. The most popular crag in this area is the roadside Pitchoff Chimney Cliff. This crag may get some traffic during the weekends. Besides Pitchoff, the other most obvious crag is the huge wall on the southeast side of Lower Cascade Lake. This is Cascade Cliff which receives little traffic because most of the routes have "grown in" and likely contain loose rock.


Getting There 

Cascade Lakes is located in a scenic mountain pass on 73 North of Keene Valley.

Pete's Farewell is the Pitchoff classic! Someone once told me the story behind the route's name. After the FA, Pete slipped off the top of the crag. Thinking Pete was dead, his partner looked over the edge to find him about 50ft below on a ledge screaming about his ankles.Pitch 1 - Climb the 30ft easy face to a ledge. 5.2Pitch 2 - Traverse the obvious line out left and up the dihedral to a belay next to the small pine.
