Description Suggest change

The easiest and shortest approach of the Silver Lake Cliffs. Has several nice moderate climbs that can be done as single pitches and top-roped. Also has two really good full length (400') routes After the Bash and Loaded For Bear. Can access the top of P1 via walking easily around climbers right. A pleasant open base.

Getting There Suggest change

Park at the Turnpike Rd. Trailhead (pg. 438 Adk Rock Vol #2, "girl book"). Stay off the road, and don't block the gated access!! Hike the great flat road to reach an old grassy log landing. Continue up and left on the great road to reach a left turn with great views of Potter and Outback. Turn left here and go a few hundred yards. Turn right and go past an obvious log landing, and slightly down hill over logging slash. Pass through hemlocks and over a small brook staying on the road. After the brook, there is a "malfunction junction" of logging roads. Stay straight walking over some slash, and see a cairn on your left about 150' past the brook (going left here would lead to Tsunami/Summit cliffs). Stay on the main road a few hundred feet further as it winds to the right. Then go more or less straight uphill easily through open woods and recent logging to the cliff. Should reach the cliff in 30 minutes or less walking casually.
