The view from the top of the cliff east.

Description 

A beautiful south facing granite cliff offering predominately single pitch trad crack climbs with a few bolts here and there.


Getting There 

From Caroga Lake drive north on NY 10 to a parking area just after crossing the Scandaga River. Follow the marked trail to a four way intersection with a large sign, turn left and follow the this old road to the lake. Continue for 2-3 minutes watching for a flagged trail that heads off and up to the right just before a bridge. The cliffs will become visible in about 15 minutes more. Total approach 45min.

House of Cards 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ E6 6c  NY : Adirondacks : ... : Good Luck Mountain
Extremely continuous and demanding climbing up an orange, overhanging corner. The first completely trad 5.13 in the Adirondacks. A classic if you can climb at this grade. Though I have neither the skills nor the cojones to climb this route, it appears nearly featureless above the small ledge 15' from the start. It is one of those routes that gains its high grade not from steepness, but from the fact that it is climbed almost entirely by slapping and smearing on an overhanging corner.
