Starting up the right-most route on the Slab, &quo...

Description 

The Slab is the large piece of open rock that is so easy to spot from the fire tower. There are 4 routes on it at the moment, all in the 5.5-5.6 range, 80 to 200 feet, with good protection. See Adirondack Rock for details:
adirondackrock.com/newroutes.h...

The Slab features the same super-coarse, grippy rock as the West Crag.

Location 

Two approach options: 1) bushwhack 1/3 mile from the West Crag (compass bearing 250 deg) to the top of the rock. 2) Hike the yellow trail to the second bridge, bushwhack up that stream to the saddle between the fire tower summit and the east summit. From the saddle a bearing of 140 degrees leads through open woods to the base. GPS strongly suggested! Coordinates are on the Adirondack Rock new routes page.

Protection 

Gear to 3". A 60m rope is sufficient. Bring slings for the tree rappels.
