Description

Chapel Pond is one of the premier ice arenas in the Adirondacks, offering a stone's-throw approach, accessible routes of all difficulty levels, and pleasant climbing conditions...usually. The pond area is directly across from the main parking lot on Rt. 73, while Chapel Pond Canyon is lookers right from the parking lot, and semi hidden down--you guessed it--a canyon. The main face of Chapel Pond is NE facing, so it is sunny in the morning, then falls into the shade for most of the day.

Be wary of this area on beautiful weekend days, as it is also THE most popular ice climbing venue in all of the Adirondacks.

Getting There

From the Northway (I-87). Take exit 30 and follow Rt. 9 northwest to NY 73. Follow this northwest straight into Keene Valley. Chapel Pond will become visible on the left after about 5 miles. The parking lot is directly in front of the Pond, though when full, parking on either side of 73 is acceptable.
