Description 

Azure is a small mountain located in the Northern stretch of the Adirondack Park. There are many rock, ice, and mixed climbing opportunities here. There are many established routes as well as opportunities for exploratory route or mountaineering adventures. The view of the High Peaks from the summit can also be inspiring on a clear day.

Getting There 

The first of the climbing can be reached within 25 minutes from the trailhead. Getting to the main face takes an additional 20-30 minutes in good conditions.

From the parking lot, follow the hiking trail past the register until a picnic table and small stream are reached. Cross the small stream and leave the trail to the left, following a climbers path. This will trend up and right toward the sidewalk cafe area.

Climbing Season

Perhaps unnecessary advice to Adirondack regulars but .... the black flies are plentiful and hungry ! ( May 5)
I could not have climbed without a mesh face protector and covering all skin.

Aug 2016 trail update .... the trail from the "old foundation" junction is in very good condition and should be easy to follow until you get close to the Equinox Face ... the forest "opens up" so much there no trail is really needed ...
