Description [Suggest Change]

A wonderful multipitch area with some great crack and face routes. Potential for new climbs is a definite possibility. The crag is an easy approach. It is roughly 20 minutes from the road. The rock is excellent in quality and there are spectacular views from an amazing summit. Hurricane is definately a worthy destination.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Exit 30 off I-87 N to 9N past Elizabethtown to the trailhead. Roughly 20 minutes up a hill to the base passing several satellite crags along the way. The New Adirondack Rock Guidebook is essential for climbing in the Dacks, and supporting your local guidebook author, and local climbing community is essential.

A couple weeks ago I lost a rope here after safety finishing the last rap down the main rappel (after doing quadraphenia - just to the right of the route). Rope was stuck so we had to abandon it. Another climber retrieved it, contacted me and said there were no knots. It was wedged in a deep crack. Therefore, be careful pulling your rope. Try to rap down in a way your rope isn't too close to any cracks. Jul 11, 2013

If you're climbing in the summer or fall here definitely watch out for bees, they're all over. I did the old route today (Sept/29/13) and upon reaching the first belay ledge i saw a bunch flying around the dead tree closest to the cliff edge while belaying my partner, also there was a lot on the second pitch and then during the rappel there was a bunch coming out of a crack half way down the final rappel. Definitely plan to go early in the morning before the bees get too active. Sep 29, 2013
On 8/1/15 evening, I lost a blue mammut rope near the trailhead to Hurrican Crag. I went back to the crag next morning but the rope wasn't there anymore (some climbers before us said they saw the rope), so it seems someone took the rope. Please let me know if you have the rope. Thank you very much!

I lost a right Mythos climbing shoe size 37 yesterday November 19th. I suspect it is at the bottom of quadraphenia. I just bought these shoes and would be willing to offer a very generous reward!!! Please please let me know if you find it. (+1 587 225 7841) Nov 20, 2016
