In the sun for the first half, then about noontime stays in the shadows. Good base and easy access to setup a top rope on the harder routes.

Bring gear to set a directional in the crack for Lifelong Affliction.

Rock quality is very good and the routes are interesting. The grades are a little sandbagged, there are definitely no gimmes here.

100 feet right of the obvious left facing corner (Brightly Colored Males) there's a 4th class gully that leads to the top for access to anchors or as a walkoff.

Getting There 

Follow shore of Chapel Pond, just before you reach Tilman's Arete there's a gully and trail heading left. Follow the trail up the gully for about 5 minutes of steep hiking. You will reach an intersection (you can see the right corner of the Gully Cliff through the trees). Head right on the climber's path for 2 minutes to reach the base of Tanager Face.

Another really good crack pitch. There are some tricky placements (but very solid), so be warned...perhaps suss out the pro after leading one of the other routes.Start up Veracity. Where that route goes straight up, branch left and follow a crack across the slab to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
