Slab. Faces south so is sunny all day.

Adirondack Rock indicates 13 climbs ranging from 5.5 to 5.11a.

Getting There 

The approach is an easy 10 minutes from the road. When coming in from the 9N (Southbound), park at the first 55MPH sign. The trail, marked by a cairn starts here (rougly .5 miles from he campground). You can park at the pullout (on the opposite side of the road and a bit further down), from where you can see the slab, but there's really no point.

P1 (5.4R) - 100' : Start at the right leaning hand crack, then follow the orange face up to a diagonal crack where a vertical crack intersects. Belay here. There is no real crux except for the long runout. Rock is good, feet are there; but there is most definitely a long runout. P2 (5.4PG) - 80': Go up the vertical crack then break right, going up to and past the left facing corner. Belay just past the corner. Anchor beta: I belayed to the right and top of the corner. There is a vertic...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
