Description 

Low-angle slabs, non-technical to easy fifth-class. Definitely not a modern rope gun's destination, Coney Mountain provides little in the way of technical challenge. What it does offer is an easy scramble up open slopes to one of the finest views in the Adirondacks. From Coney's summit, a 360 degree view reveals the High Peaks, the western Adirondacks, the north slopes of Blue Mountain, and the enticing south face of Mt. Morris, where Big Tupper Ski area is located.

Getting There 

One of the most convenient crags in this region, there is a small parking area for Coney Mountain on the east side of Route 30 about fifteen minutes' drive north of Long Lake.
From the parking area, walk the trail for a couple minutes, to the second set of planks, then cut off and up the ridge right of the trail. An 8-minute, moderate bushwhack leads to the closest slab.

With a threesome, what was the third wheel to do while his friends climbed the crack line to the right? Why, solo up the clean slab to its left, of course. No need to change shoes - or even drop the pack - Tom Lane just waltzed up to the top of the open rock to await our arrival.It's really too bad that Coney's slopes aren't steeper, because its rock is incredibly grippy.The end of open rock leaves you still well below the summit; you have to scramble up dirty blocks, gullies, and minu...[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
