The South Face of the Chimney


Low-angle 5th class to a piton at mid-height, to a blocky finish atop the chimney.


This route starts just next to the cliff edge on the lookout, and ascends the south face of the chimney. Down-leading is likely the best descent option.


Light trad rack, with long slings for anchors. There are no fixed anchors. One piton at mid-height.

Add a visit to the Eagle Caves and you have a great day out. The South Face as a climb is also known as the Standard Route, which is listed in Adirondack Rock as 5.1 and had the "FA" in 1941 by Edward C Hudowalski (listed as an ACB).
