Description 

Cascade Pass is the spectacular canyon separating Pitchoff and Cascade mountains. Route 73 runs along the North edge of Upper and Lower Cascade Lakes, providing views of fat ice on both sides of the canyon. While the flows on the South side are difficult to access, the obvious ice on the lower flanks of Pitchoff is only a short hike from the road, making it one of the most popular ice climbing areas in the Adirondacks.

The canyon is a natural wind tunnel, so dress warm. Expect company.


Getting There 

From Lake Placid, take Route 73 East towards Keene Valley.
From the Northway, take 73 W past Keene Valley and Keene.

Cascade Pass is the fairly obvious constriction where the road juts up against the narrow lakes. The most accessible ice climbing is NE of Lower Cascade Lake.
