The Southeast flank runs roughly ENE for over a mile, a precipitous, complex assortment of steep slopes, pocket ravines, and gullies, many of which hide good ice flows.
Walk the trailhead road to the parking lot and then take the Boulderwoods path back eastward. For the low-lying routes like the Waterfall, stay low, following the general directions from the 2008 Adirondack Rock guidebook; for climbing the higher tiers, sticking to the Black Arches Wall Path is better. Expect approach for the lower routes to be close to an hour, up to 2 hours for Leap of Faith, for the higher lines to be 45 minutes.
