What length would work here? Would a 30m rope be too short? Or would it be better to use a 60m rope? Mar 22, 2015

Yeah, I think a 30m rope would work OK. The routes are short! Mar 27, 2015

Last season I ran into a developer for this crag at Deadwater, who said that this place is seeing some more action and many of the routes have seen a lot of equipping making nice short leads. Check Adirondack Rock's new route page for more information! May 12, 2018
