A wonderful multipitch area with some great crack and face routes. Potential for new climbs is a definite possibility. The crag is an easy approach. It is roughly 20 minutes from the road. The rock is excellent in quality and there are spectacular views from an amazing summit. Hurricane is definately a worthy destination.
Exit 30 off I-87 N to 9N past Elizabethtown to the trailhead. Roughly 20 minutes up a hill to the base passing several satellite crags along the way. The New Adirondack Rock Guidebook is essential for climbing in the Dacks, and supporting your local guidebook author, and local climbing community is essential.
