A handful of quality bolted routes line the right end of this crag. As the name implies, this crag gets lots of sun making it a fine stop for early or late season bolt clippin.

Getting There 

From where the approach trail meets the cliff, go right to the bolted face or left to several wandering trad slabs.

Strenuous, undercling, slab climbing. This is a unique route that looks easier than it is. Start on good holds next to a dead tree. Pull over the starting bulge and scramble up low angle slab to the first bolt. Follow the maze of downward facing holds up the slightly off-vertical slab.Well bolted and good fun although it looks like a hold or two has broken off and a few more could be poised to pop. Belayer be warned. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New York

This was my first place cragging since climbing in the Red River Gorge over spring break, and it was a reminder of either the Red's modern grade softness or the Dack's traditional sandbagging. Perfect for spring climbing, found only one section at the start of Bee Hold, I believe to be wet, otherwise it was super dry, grippy with sharp, not-always-positive holds, and a beautiful view on top
