This cliff is great for having many moderates close together, with a few short lines that pack a punch. A great season opener for the volume of climbing you can get in within a day. Although the cliff is a mere 60 feet tall, the rock quality is good and climbing fun. This area is mostly concealed by the tree line and can get buggy.

There's a lot of climbing here and it can easily fill up a day. Check in the ADK Rock climbing guide and on the adirondackrock.com website for new routes. I went this past weekend and usually go in the Spring, going in the late summer is MUCH better in terms of bugs and mud. Unfortunately our group did get attacked by yellow jackets as we were approaching 100 yards from the cliff. The 5.6 routes are good for the grade.
