Hitchins Pond Mountain Rock Climbing
A long, SE-facing slab standing above Hitchins Pond (which is part of the Bog River), by the southern access to Lowe's Lake.
There are several campsites along Hitchins Pond, but be aware this is area is so popular that those sites are often filled during summer weekends. Indiscriminate camping is NOT allowed; you must be well away from water, trails, and roads in order to set up a camp, and in this region, finding a legal site can be difficult or well-nigh impossible.
There is a private access road for a Boy Scout Camp nearby, but this is off-limits to the public.
Also note, the bear population can be meddlesome in this neck of the woods.
Hitchins Pond is a popular canoe camping destination, a frequent stopping point for paddlers on their way to Lowe's Lake.
Hiking in requires a 2 1/2 mile from Cty Rt. 421 or a 3-mile paddle up the Bog River from the end of that same road.
Climbing Season For the Adirondacks area.
Weather station 1.5 miles from here
