Description

Spruce ledge is a broken cliff line made up of horizontally stratified small grain sandstone and, primarily, pebble sized conglomerate. For the most part the rock is very solid, although as with any young climbing area there are loose blocks here and there, and the edges of some of the conglomerate bands crumble at first.

The character of the cliffs here is highly overhung, with lots of horizontal alcoves from fallen out rock. The area around the cliffs is scattered with many boulders that, generally speaking, are of higher quality rock than the cliffs.

Getting There

Long. Steep. Hellishly humid. Fourth classy. Pockets of the forest floor are just deep boulder fields with crevasses under the leaves.

Starting at stoney brook lane follow the dirt road until you come to a hunting camp on your left. Keep following the road as it becomes more and more taken over by the forest, and anytime it splits take the option that goes uphill to the right. Eventually the road just kind of disappears, and it becomes a bushwack. With heavy packs the last half mile of this approach is no joke. Seriously steep hill, leaf hidden boulder crevasses, and fourth classy boulder navigation await you between dense secondary young forest growth. If you are unlucky with your bushwacking route you'll run into a ~15 foot tall cliff line blocking your way from the last 2/10 of a mile to the real cliffs. Navigate around these and keep persevering. You'll get there.
