The lower part of the Kaaterskill Falls. As it's pretty wide there are at least three routes on this section (left, center, right). Frequently the left side is easiest as a cone will form there, so the route difficulty will vary from WI2 to WI3.


From the road follow the Kaaterskill trail about 1/2 mile to it's end.


There are very, very few natural anchors at the top, so bring a couple long screws for the belay. You can also top rope by scrambling up on the climbers right and walking left beneath the upper wall (very slippery!).


This was the only time I ever incorporated a bollard in my anchor. There really is nothing solid up there. Mar 4, 2015
