Description 

A few fun climbs that are very easily accessed. Great for toproping.

Getting There 

Located just South of South Colton, NY. Take Route 56 to East Hill Road and then turn right on Scovill Road. After about 3 miles, the road takes a sharp right turn toward a cell phone tower. It is possible to park on Scovil road or follow a rough dirt road to a grassy clearing to park closer. Follow an ATV trail downhill for a few minutes, taking a left onto a climbers path just after a small stream crossing. The cliffs will become visible as you reach the top of the hill.

Featured Route For South Colton

Love It 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  New York : Adirondacks : ... : South Colton
Can be found to the right of a mossy wall and next to a huge tree. Climb up the initial blocks, up a v-shaped cut and then up the crack to the top. A few moves that are a bit hard for 5.7 at the top. Like some SoCo climbs, it can be found to be wet even a few days after rain, dirty and somewhat polished. It can be sort of hard to agree with the name of this route, but it is a good SoCo climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
