thomas - go ahead and add stuff bud... it's an open site and I just quickly added them so the area was up and encourage others to add to it since it's such a large area with loads of problems. Unfortunately, I've not been in recent years as I've been developing other new areas for climbing in CT. And yes, I know john's real name, I used his nick name on purpose thanks!

This area is not very developed. its best to try to come here with someone who knows the area pretty well. the trails are not very well maintained, and the thick woods can be disorienting. Its also a little hard to find the area to park your car. there's chalk on all of the boulders though! so get out there and climb this stuff and lets all put some ticks down and get this area well documented. the gneiss rock quality is great and its so closeby -- it would be cool if we got all the names and grades down for this sector, so that this place would get a little bit more love and attention.

Parking is extremely limited. If the parking area is full. Please be respectful and do not park illegally on the road. Parking illegally is a sure way to jeopardize access to this gem of a place.
Some food for thought... Ice Pond has remained on the down low for quite some time to preserve access. The bouldering here is unregulated. It will likely remain that way as long as climbers are good guests. Ice Pond is by no means a secret spot, but before you post beta/photos on a public forum, think about why this area (like others in NY) have gone undocumented for as long as they have.
-Preserve Access
-Leave No Trace
-Brush off your tick marks
-Pack your trash
-Park responsibly!
