|Giants Workshop is a fun area to bring all skill levels of hikers and rock scrambling fanatics but there is no climbing. I went there as a child and now bring our children, would not reccomend less than 10 years old and 2 pairs of hands for each child. Please refer to any map of Mohonk Preserve for directions and location. The posted description is useless and incorrect.|

I did the Giant's Path/Giant's Workshop trail with my kids on Columbus Day weekend, and as we approached the scramble from the Rhododendron Bridge on Laurel Ledge road/trail there were rather short (maybe 50-75 feet?) cliffs to the left of the trail. And then there were the cliffs that the scramble itself goes through, after you turn right off of Laurel Ledge. I spied lines that certainly seemed climbable, although I questioned whether they'd be worth the approach hike.
All of this is on Preserve land, so climbing is okay, right? At some point on the Giant's Path you'll enter Mountain House Hotel property, but I'm not sure where the boundary is.

|That is about all the beta needed really, to be honest, if you are in the gunks and climbing these grades you will figure it out! Project X/projectile on the left (12c), Intruders straight up (13a), Toys for Tots on the arete on the right. Toys has some old fixed gear on it. Funky fixed anchor that Intruders and Project X share(same finish). Long walk to get here, like 50minutes. Get a free map of the preserve and you will find it.|

The area "Beta Photo" seems to show Arching Rocks, not Giant's Workshop. The routes are not blocky overhangs, as one would assume from the photo; but the wall is steep nonetheless.
The lines are pretty obvious.

Awesome location and routes if you climb 5.12.
If you aspire to climb 5.12 Project X is a great route to train on. All the holds are massive through the crux.
However, you'l likely be top-roping it ... so you'll have to end up doing the Projectile finish (same finish as for Intruders) and that's another section of 12a with small, often sloping edges and little for the feet.
Great place to hang for a day!
Used to be if you came off at or a bit below the crux while TRing, you'd swing so far back you could hop on a branch on far tree and take a rest. Then jump off and swing back onto the route. But I'd guess that branch might no longer be there.
