DescriptionSitting just below the summit of Potter Mountain, this is one of the largest cliffs at Silver Lake. It contains some of the best multi-pitch face climbing in the northeast. The rock is some of the best in the park -- vertical acres of dimpled awesomeness, scoured clean by winter ice.
The cliff heats up in the summer, so don't go here if it's warmer than 70 degrees. In the cool weather of October and November, there is no better place to be; even if it's below freezing at the car, you'll be climbing in T-shirts at the cliff.
Getting ThereFrom the Goodrich Mills Trailhead, follow the logging road to a clearing, then bear 45 degrees right and continue on the logging road to the height of land (good view of the cliff here). Continue another 1 minute along the flat road, then look for a herd path on the left. Follow this (some cairns) to the cliff.
