BETA PHOTO: The pinnacles of Chapel Pond Pass


These are the broken collection of cliffs between Spider's Web and Upper Washbowl. While there are some high quality routes, the abundance of scree and talus and general loose rock makes this area much less appealing than the many other high quality cliffs in this region. This area is home to the only free-standing pinnacles in the Adirondacks.

Getting There 

Approach as for Spider's Web, but cut up the talus toward the climb/cliff of your choice.

Rickety Pinnacle 5.2 3 8 II 8 D 2c  New York : Adirondacks : ... : Lower Washbowl Cliffs
This is the small pinnacle at the top of the wall above the Lost Arrow. It is worth doing once due to the rarity of formations like this in the area and the spectacular positioning above Chapel Pond Pass. Once at the base, step up ledges until you can grab the top. Mantle up and enjoy the view....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
