Lower Washbowl Cliffs Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The pinnacles of Chapel Pond Pass
These are the broken collection of cliffs between Spider's Web and Upper Washbowl. While there are some high quality routes, the abundance of scree and talus and general loose rock makes this area much less appealing than the many other high quality cliffs in this region. This area is home to the only free-standing pinnacles in the Adirondacks.
Approach as for Spider's Web, but cut up the talus toward the climb/cliff of your choice.
