Mt Philips has a large collection of granite boulders. There are at least 40 freestanding boulders and several ledge systems. The Prince Philip boulder and cluster is the must visit spot in the area.
Leave no trace. Boar's hair brush or nylon brush should be all that is needed on established problems. Please contact a local or BRCA if you would like to develop problems. Bury your poop!
Tim Dailey and friends started the development of this area in 2004. In 2011, Jeffory Luce and Curt Monaco started the current phase of development. Please let me know if you have any history to add!
Trailhead: A parking lot is located on the north side of Route 225, directly across from Starbird Lane, 1.5 miles east of Rome Corner (the junction of Routes 27 and 225).

always knew there was more rock out there...

I've been visiting the Belgrade lakes since before I could walk, particularly east pond. I've been climbing for a few years and have always wondered if there was any good rock in the area, but didn't want to take any time away from the lake to go on a wild goose chase, after all I only get about a week a year up there and try to make the best of it!! Anyway, I'm wondering if there is any tall rock around the Mt Philip area? I don't have any pads but would love to role up in such a special place! Any info would be greatly appreciated!!
