Description

A few fun climbs that are very easily accessed. Great for toproping.

Getting There

Located just South of South Colton, NY. Take Route 56 to East Hill Road and then turn right on Scovill Road. After about 3 miles, the road takes a sharp right turn toward a cell phone tower. It is possible to park on Scovil road or follow a rough dirt road to a grassy clearing to park closer. Follow an ATV trail downhill for a few minutes, taking a left onto a climbers path just after a small stream crossing. The cliffs will become visible as you reach the top of the hill.
