Description

Great cliff with a short hike in, this is the place to go to jump on a few routes after work if time is tight. Rock quality is good where the routes are, but on either side the cliff fades out into choss.

Getting There

Most climbers will be travelling  via  the major north south highway,  # 87 to get to Stewarts Ledge … leave 87 at exit 21 and take 9N (north/east) briefly, then left (north toward  Lake George) on highway #9, 1/3 mile later turn right onto # 9L. Travel along 9L as it scenically follows the shoreline (also called E Shore Drive then Ridge Road) for 7 miles,. At the junction  with Pilot Knob Road hook left, don't worry about the "NO EXIT" sign. Follow Pilot Knob Rd (CR #32) for 3.5 miles …then  park at Buck Mountain Trailhead. Popular place on nice days.
   Follow the main hiking  trail for 200 yards then turn right,(you should be at a 4-way hiking intersection)  … continue gently uphill until you see the beginning of the cliff line on your left ( 7 minutes), most of the climbs are a little farther along and can be seen from the trail. Find a path through the small talus field .. or just make your own way through, don't be surprised to see a steady stream of passing  hikers on nice days.
   There is a crude established trail which hugs the cliff  along the base of the popular climbs.
