|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.
