Description

Hike about 1 1/2 miles and gain 800 vertical feet along a hiking path (steep and eroded in places) to reach a modest slab/face with three reported routes.

Left to Right:
3 Blind Mice (5.5)
South Summit Route (5.6)
Geriatric Wanderings (5.4 ) with potential of a 2-3 star, 5.7-5.9? ending face.

Getting There

Park in the newly relocated NY-State parking lot which is on Forestdale Rd about 1/2 mile west of(i.e. before) the old trailhead. (The old trail apparently crossed private land.)

Hike the (badly eroded in places) trail about 1 1/2 miles and 800 vertical feet (45 min- 1 hr) to a 150-200 ft-long x 25 ft wide open slab with great views to the East, South and West. Find a 4 ft high boulder, this is your "landmark" for the climbs.

See the "Getting there" for the individual climbs, starting at this boulder.

There is a definite base line, along the cliffs at the bottom of the south summit, with a crude trail that hugs the base if you want to explore new route possibilities while looking up at the rock. On the left end (looking at the rock) is some steep rock that looks promising for "higher end" climbers. Nov 16, 2017
