Description

This cliff is part of the Boreas Tract, a parcel of land purchased by NYS in 2016. It contains a great collection of high-quality routes from 5.8 to 5.12d. One section of cliff has 4 five-star routes packed right next to one another, and the anchors of each are accessible by leading a stellar 5.8 route.

As of 2016, the land classification hasn't been established. It seems likely this parcel will eventually be included in the High Peaks Wilderness area.

Getting There

From Exit 29, drive west on the Blue Ridge Road. Turn right onto Gulf Brook Rd and park before the gate.

Walk 15 minutes up the road to an ATV trail on the right. This is 100' past the second gravel pit on the left. Follow the ATV trail to where it turns sharply left. Go straight and follow a path to the cliff. It takes about 25 minutes overall.

Update: As of Aug 31, 2016, the DEC has opened Gulf Brook Rd for the first 3.2 miles. If the gate is open, drive up the road and park at the ATV trail, then walk 8 minutes to the cliff.
