Dix Mountain from the top of the slab- a scenic vi...


A handful of quality bolted routes line the right end of this crag. As the name implies, this crag gets lots of sun making it a fine stop for early or late season bolt clippin.

Getting There 

From where the approach trail meets the cliff, go right to the bolted face or left to several wandering trad slabs.

Freak Accident with Gasoline 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c  NY : Adirondacks : ... : Sunshine City
Shares the same start as WMP but keeps going straight up to a double bolt anchor. Run-out but easy at the top. The crux is mid-way up, but well protected....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY

This was my first place cragging since climbing in the Red River Gorge over spring break, and it was a reminder of either the Red's modern grade softness or the Dack's traditional sandbagging. Perfect for spring climbing, found only one section at the start of Bee Hold, I believe to be wet, otherwise it was super dry, grippy with sharp, not-always-positive holds, and a beautiful view on top
