This is the series of large cliffs that rise up above Cat Mountain Pond. There are many opportunities for hard sport climbing. Most of the cliff is unexplored and some parts are quite dirty. There is also quite a bit of loose rock so be careful in approaching and climbing.

Getting There 

There are two main approaches:
1. Hike down from the summit past the summit cliffs to the top of the Main Face. From here you can downclimb gullies and rappel to the bottom.

2. The best approach is from Cat Mountain Pond where it is easy to bushwack North to the base of the cliff.

Move right along the ledge to the base of a short left-facing corner(formed by the large flake visible from below) that contains a dirty off-width. Climb up the off-width to the top of the flake(crux). Move out to a stance on the face of the flake. Climb the right-rising flake to it's high point. Make a long step right to a small ledge which makes a blocky crack around the corner reachable. Gain the ledge and belay. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
