Description Suggest change

Rogers Rock is a 700' Slab that rises right out of Lake George. You don't need to go to Thailand, Summersville Lake or Arcadia to get on some cool routes rising out of the water... and unlike those other places - these are all 3 pitch climbs!

The climbs must be approached by boat, unless you want a miserable 4 hour bushwack to start your day, which adds a real sense of adventure to the day.

Climbs vary in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.9 (or harder?)

The face gets A LOT of sun in the summer time - wear some heavy SPF if you plan on workin' that back tan of yours.

Getting There Suggest change

Take 9N 3 miles past Hague to Roger's Rock State Campground. You'll need a boat to get to the base of the cliff, and there are options: you can drive a little farther north on 9 and rent a canoe for more money than it's worth, bring your own boat, or pay the local deck-hands to ferry you out to the base of your climb.
