Tucked away above Chub Lake is this excellent cliff averaging 40-80 feet in height with high quality cracks.

Mostly trad with added bolts, and a few bolted lines. Top ropes can be setup for most (if not all) routes.

Important - Some routes with bolts are intended to be stick clipped to protect the opening moves.

Getting There 

5.6 miles north of the Route 29A and Route 10 intersection, at a parking area (18T 538082 4789285) on the right side, look for a trail heading north/northeast. Follow this approach (to Lost Hunter) along Chub Lake for 5 minutes. Take a left downhill towards the lake, then a right before reaching the lake's shore. After a couple minutes bear right at flagging (Y intersection). Follow this trail as it makes its way uphill for about 10 minutes, passing access paths to The Annex on the left. Pink and orange flagging. Easy to follow.

Went there last weekend and it was really wet. Is this typical? Does it ever dry out seams like there is a lot of tree cover.

The parking lot you want is literally 5.6 miles from the intersection. It has a giant field next to it so you can't miss it. The trail is the right of the field when you're looking at it. Don't head out into the field just head to the right. It's hard to see from the road JSYK. We camped in the field itself which was cool, but apparently there are spots by the lake that are even better. Hike in, have fun!

FOUND - A man's wedding ring was found at the base of Lost T by a DEC ranger this weekend. Contact Ranger Ploss to claim.

Every time I've been here it's been dry. This is a terrific little cliff with a high concentration of clean fun moderate crack climbs next to each other. Several of the routes with fewer stars are also very good and well worth doing. Very comfortable and pleasant at the base as well.

My friend and I went and climbed at Lost T for the first time yesterday and found some of the anchors were installed improperly or just were not tight enough. The drop in anchors seemed to be the only ones to be concerned with. the bolts themselves moved inside their drilled holes and my friend had a nut pop off in his hand as he went to try to hand tighten it. All was well because we had a static rope to back things up with but I wanted to make sure people were aware! 9/29/2015
