Description

This is a small, 70'-high, southeast-facing cliff is a better-known for its sport climbs (The Honey Pot), but it has one really good ice route.

The cliff is about 80' wide, and has a low, sheer, vertical wall, a roof at mid-height, and an overhanging wall at the top. It is nestled in a tiny valley, and sees full sun until mid afternoon. The base of the cliff is open and pleasant, and there are decent views of the valley from the top. The Northway can be seen (and barely heard) from the top.

Getting There

From the Northway (I-87) Exit 31, drive east on NY 9N for 1.7 miles. Park on the south side of the road directly across from the former Mountain Shadows restaurant (now an apartment), and just east (and in sight of) the Essex County Transportation Maintenance facility (shown as "gravel pit" on topo maps).

Locate an old forest road across the road from the former Mountain Shadows building. Follow this south into the woods, roughly along the fence of the maintenance facility, to a power line. Go straight across the power line and pick up the forest road again. Follow this on a southerly course through generally open, pleasant forest, heading gradually uphill and contouring the hillside. The forest road is difficult to follow in places, but if you stay on course, it will lead you to the base of the cliff about 20 min from the car. There is presently some flagging to show the way.
