A small, accessible cliff with excellent rock. The cliff has high-angle face and corner routes, and the climbing is much more difficult than it appears from the ground. There are presently about 8 routes here from 5.8 to 5.11b, with a concentration in the 5.11 range. Most routes have some bolts; all but 1 route require at least a few pieces of gear.

The right side of the cliff is split by a right-rising ledge that you can walk comfortably on. Most routes begin from this ledge.

Getting There 

From Indian Lake, drive west on NY 30 2.1 miles, then left on Cedar River Road. At roughly 10 miles, there's a large fisherman's parking lot on the left. Park here. Continue down the road about 200 yards, then turn left and walk up in the woods about 1 minute to the cliff.

NOTE that the gigantic megadeath flake to the left is prob...[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
