DescriptionHike 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 TherePark 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.
