Description

Chatiemac Cliff is one of the premier steep climbing cliffs in the Adirondack Park (others include The Crown near Exit 30, the Honey Pot near Exit 31, and the Crime Scene Wall near Westport). The main wall overhangs by 20 degrees, and some sections even more. Presently there are five 13s, two 12s, three 11s, and four 10s. The rock is generally good, with some plate-like features you see at nearby Crane Mountain, and some unique pockets. Unlike other steep crags, the overhanging rock at Chatiemac has solid holds. The routes are typically short, although there are some moderately long pitches.

The cliff is located on the southeastern-most ridge of Gore Mountain, in the Siamese Ponds Wilderness area.

Getting There

Just south of Gore Mountain on Route 8, locate Chatiemac Road. Follow this to the end of the public section at the Second Pond trailhead. Hike the trail to Second Pond for 10 minutes to a 3'-tall pointed boulder on the right side of the trail. Turn off the trail 100 degrees to the right and bushwhack 200' until you pick up a path that leads to the cliff, which is about 30 minutes from the parking.
