Description

This beautiful lake has a good selection of bouldering scattered around its shores, and along the stream that exists the lake on the north end.

The climbs are all on excellent quality rock and range from short and steep to taller more technical. The rock on the eastern and southern sides of the lake is similar to Way lake (Gniess), and the rock on the north and western sides is granite.

Finding the boulders can be a bit tricky but if you use the map on MP you should be OK.

Getting There

Take highway 203 to the stop light at the Village. Continue straight on Lake Mary rd.. Follow this to the left turn at the Pokonobe Lodge. Take a right at the "T" and continue up to the Lake George parking area. Hike around the right side of the shore until it is possible to take a left up an open hill side on a well worn path.

Follow the path up and passed Lake Barrett. TJ Lake is soon reached.

Some beta for the approach to TJ lake: park in the Lake George lot, and then head left. This should bring you towards the USFS campsite. Keeping the campsite to your left and the lake to your right, walk along the large path on the shore. It should keep you about 20 feet from the shore until it narrows into small singletrack. Follow this past two cabins. Right before you hit the third cabin, you should see a single track trail going uphill to your left, as well as a small wooden sign nailed to a tree that reads TJ Lake. The trail follows a stream that flows out of TJ Lake. Follow it to the top of the hill to reach TJ Lake. I found going around the left side of the lake (as opposed to the right) shorter and also far easier with a crashpad. Jul 19, 2018
