DescriptionA beautiful south facing granite cliff offering predominately single pitch trad crack climbs with a few bolts here and there.
There are three separate climbing spots here:
(1) The Main Face -- obvious, where most of the routes are located. The left side is broken up a bit, and there is a separate buttress on the far left separated by gullies.
(2) The Summit Cliff -- a small cliff that sits above the left side of the Main Face, and directly below the viewpoint on the summit. There are two routes here.
(3) Good Luck Boulder -- a very large boulder with two routes. This sits in middle of the substantial talus below the main face. There is no easy access to the top of this boulder.
Getting ThereFrom Caroga Lake drive north on NY 10 to a parking area just after crossing the Scandaga River. Follow the marked trail to a four way intersection with a large sign, turn left and follow the this old road to the lake. Continue for 2-3 minutes watching for a flagged trail that heads off and up to the right just before a bridge. The cliffs will become visible in about 15 minutes more. Total approach 45min.
