Description

Cloudspin cliff is generally west-northwest aspect. Stays in the shade in the am. Has a great view of Whiteface ski area. The summit is very pleasant and the approach is very easy. Routes are in a wilderness arena and you should expect there to be some lichen, bugs and dirt. That being said the cliff contains some one and two pitch gems.

Getting There

There are several legal parking areas. The main parking area is right in front of the Wilmington Notch State Campground. There are two overflow areas; one closer to Whiteface as you head toward Wilmington and a large lot closer to Lake Placid. If you park at the State Camp Ground or the lot closest to Whiteface you will walk toward Lake Placid. If you are parked in the Lake Placid lot walk toward Whiteface. Look for the forest preserve sign and a diamond shaped road sign. There is currently a rock carin visible from the road. Follow some carins and flagging to the left end of the cliff. 10-15 min approach depending on parking area.
