Description 

This crag is the impressive piece of rock on the right side of the road on 73 when driving North from Keene Valley. Its easy roadside access and short approach make it a popular weekend crag. Pitchoff Chimney Cliff is home to about 20 climbs. Ranging from 5.7-5.11. The rock quality is excellent and involves vertical/horizontal cracks and face. Protection is generally good. Most of the climbs offer spectacular views of the scenic Cascade Pass.
Classic Routes - Pete's Farewell 5.7, The El 5.8 and Roaches on the Wall 5.10.

Getting There 

Roadside on 73 across from Cascade Lakes, which is about 15mins south of Lake Placid. There are 2 small parking lots on the Cascade Lake side of the road. The approach trail towards the left side of the crag is obvious.

Roaches is a Pitchoff must, as well as a bonafide Adirondack classic. In the 90 feet of climbing offered here, you'll find a sporty right to left traverse into a brief crimpy face climbing section past a small piece of gear and a bolt. Next, a surprisingly easy roof is thrown at you capped with a striking finger crack crux that leads to the fun exit moves through a series of slopey cracks.This route is a safe way to break into Adirondack 5.10s, and it is just plain fun to climb again, and agai...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
