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

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.

Relayer 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  New York : Adirondacks : ... : South Colton
Start on the right-facing flake, climb blocks up and left to a small ledge (or skip it and go straight up). Continue along two right-leaning cracks until they fork. From there stay on the left crack and climb up, this is the crux. The crack to the right looks possible to send as well and is listed as variation for this climb in Adirondack Rock.Climb is somewhat dirty, especially near the top, but is doable regardless and offers a lot of variation....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
