Description 

This is the largest and most consistent portion of cliffs at Azure Mountain. It features a few seldom-visited but generally high-quality rock and ice routes.

Getting There 

Once passing the Sidewalk Cafe Area(the first series of cliffs encountered above the climbers' trail), continue to contour around the mountain, reminding yourself not to gain elevation. Eventually you will come to the main face approached via a large talus field. If you go too high you can still get back down via some sketchy bushwhacking. To access the base of certain features some potentially sketchy slabs/steps may have to be negotiated so be careful... this isn't the kind of place you want to break an ankle.

Hangover Remedy WI4 M3  NY : Adirondacks : ... : Main Face
This climb was named by a group of college climbers from St. Lawrence and Clarkson after a night of festivities. The route starts off thin down low and gets beautifully fat up high with a step and a second steep headwall. The headwall can be bypassed by going to the right up some slabby ice, however, there is a nice rappel tree left from the top of the headwall. Some webbing may or may not be sun deteriorated around said tree. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
