500 ft slab, faces SE. Granite friction climbing. Consult Adirondack Rock 2nd Ed. for route descriptions.
About 8 miles down Cedar River Rd. See ADK guidebook for details. Approach is moderate bushwack 15-20 minutes. Lower slab is mostly vegetated and routes can start out mossy, dirty, and/or tree-studded. But persevere and you will find solid, grippy pink granite once you're above the trees. The rock quality here might just be the best of all the ADK slabs. Given the obscure nature of the base, routes can be difficult to locate; GPS might just salvage your day (coordinates in the guidebook). I have posted some photos of a few of the routes to help you locate these.
