Barton High Cliff is a chossy, wide, northwest-facing cliff on a subsummit (point 1910 on USGS maps) of Barton Mountain. The cliff has a bunch of summer adventure routes, and a couple excellent winter ice routes.

Getting There 

There are several approaches, but this one is the fastest, albeit with more complex navigation. Study a map beforehand, and bring a compass.

Park at a large pullout on NY 8, 11.8 miles east of Northway Exit 25. Bushwhack north 40 minutes to a brook, that you follow downstream to a tributary on the right. Turn right and follow this tributary to the cliff, on your right.
