Scenic, backcountry (2 hr approach) climbing adjacent (3/4 mile away) to the recently opened, 3350' elevation fire tower peak. The view from the fire tower is spectacular, and the rock can be seen from there. The easiest approaches, however, leave the hiking trail about a mile before the summit. Rock is clean and grippy and offers great protection. There are presently 10 routes up there. A few are described here; see Adirondack Rock's new routes page for more:

Getting There 

From Saranac Lake, take Rt 3 north approx 16 miles to a left on County Rt 26. The trailhead lot (DEC sign to Loon Lake Mt) is on the left at 7.8 miles. See each route for more specifics on the approach to the rock. A GPS unit is almost essential to locating each bit of rock.

Climbing Season
