Description

This is the mostly-chossy, discontinuous cliff on the south side of Makomis Mountain near the Northway Exit 30. There are a few solid sections with routes that are definitely worth a visit. The approach is easy-ish.

The cliff is mostly known for the ice route Rites of Passage (Blue Lines 2, page 142).

Getting There

Park at the huge pullout at Exit 30, on the left as you go toward Keene Valley, the same parking as for King Philips Spring Wall.

Walk on NY 9 towards Keene Valley. On the north side of the road, watch the property boundary markings. As soon as you see the red "private" signs on a tree, drop over the steep embankment and follow the property boundary north. The boundary is clearly marked and cut wide. Cross a stream and continue on the boundary to a trough, about 10 minutes from the road. Just after the trough, look for a large boulder on the right, about 50' from the property boundary. Leave the boundary here and follow the giant white pine trees northeast to an open ridge. Go up the ridge to the left end of the cliff.
