Description 

Located near Cranberry Lake, Cat Mountain is a scenic mountain with a long but easy approach. There are several cliff bands that are mostly unexplored with great opportunity for hard sport climbing.

Getting There 

Go West on Rt. 3 for 7.7 miles from Cranberry Lake and turn left onto Wanakena Rd. Follow this for a little over a mile into Wanakena, staying right at all forks. Once in Wanakena the road will cross a bridge and soon turn left on S. Shore Road. Follow the road for a few minutes past one trailhead to another with a small parking area directly next to it. This is the trailhead to Dead Creek Flow. Follow the signs at the junctions to Cat Mountain. The approach is about 5 miles on flat, easy terrain.

Climb up the crack in the flared corner to a good rest stance at some blocks below an overlap. Use the off-width crack to climb over the overlap to a ledge atop a large flake. Creep left to a perch at the end of the ledge. Step left and climb up the improbable, mossy, dirty off-width(crux) to a ledge with thick trees below a small unprotected slab. Avoid the slab by pushing through the trees until it is possible to gain the top. Belay from tree(s) on top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
