Tilman's Arete Rock Climbing
The approach is this close ... can be viewed from ...
This small section of rock is situated only a few feet removed from Chapel pond, making for a unique climbing experience. The area is frequented by ice climbers during the winter months, as is evident from crampon scars.
Tilman's Arete makes for a great place to hide from the sun during the summer months as it is Northeast facing, and only a few hundred feet removed from the beach on Chapel Pond.
Park either as for Chapel pond, or on the side of the road by creature wall, Chapel pond slabs, or the hiking trails off of Rt 73.
Get yourself to the south end of Chapel Pond and follow a trail that goes down to the water and beach. Walk straight across the beech to the prominent right angling arete. A stream or two may have to be crossed depending on water level. There may be logs in place, other wise it is ankle deep or so. At the far end of the beach, follow a trail for a few yards up to the base of the cliff.
Allow around 5 minutes for the approach depending on how many gals you stop to chat up on the beech.
