Description Suggest change

A great bouldering area in a beautifu lakeside setting. Shaded blocks with many many established problems and new route potential. Expect crowds, as the lake is a popular camping/party spot, however these masses rarely if ever venture into the area with the bouldering. Dog owners should be aware of broken glass en masse in the camping areas. The rock quality is great, the top outs are sketchy and the regulars are cool. A detailed guide, as well as more complete directions, to the area is available in the first edition of the Adirondack Rock guidebook.

There is a mobile app for Nine Corner Lake Bouldering available here

There is an updated, dedicated print guidebook for bouldering in the Adirondack Park available here, which includes Nine Corner Lake.

Getting There Suggest change

drive down NY 29A until you reach the second trailhead pull off, park here (intelligently, the lot gets PACKED, esp. on nice weekends) and duck into the mile long trail to Nine Corner Lake
