DescriptionThe best pure friction climbing in the Northeast. Often run out and bold but always fun and exciting. Routes like Sliding Board and Standard Route see the crowds, but I've never climbed a bad route in this area....
The slabs are located on the north end of the cliff, very sunny for the first half of the day...You will bake in the sun on a hot summer day... And look out for rain clouds when you are run out 100ft on a seemingly innocent bit of friction, it can get slick....
Some of the most popular routes start from the "launch pad", a platform of rock about a 100ft of the ground located in the middle of the slab... It is an easy walk up to the launch pad, so most folks don't rope up till this point....
There are many other starts along the base of the cliff most routes start with a poorly or unprotected climb up moderate friction to the first anchor.... The starts will be described in the routes description....
