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 5.12c. 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.

While the routes are not reachable from above, it is possible to toprope the difficult lines by leading one of the best 5.8 cracks around, Kittens, Rainbows, and Lollipops.

If you exclude all the roadside areas in the Chapel Pond corridor, this crag is probably the easiest to reach out of all the High Peaks areas.

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.

If the gate is open, you are allowed to drive on Gulf Brook Road, but as of 2020, you cannot legally park at the trailhead (it not a "designated" parking area yet, and might not be for some time). You can, however, shuttle your friends and packs to the trailhead, then drive back and park.
