Scenic cliff above Lake George. Offers quality moderate climbs that would also be ideal beginner's leads.

Several locals have climbed here over the years, focusing mostly on the beautiful and prominent crack that has yet to be sent free (dubbed "The Chingacrack" by Jason Brechko, previously named "Eagle Crack" when TR'd in 1997). Only recently did Mike Gray, Todd Paris, and Valerie Bachinsky develop the remaining wall.

Getting There 

From the Buck Mountain trailhead on Pilot Knob Rd, walk 20 minutes toward Buck Mt. On the left side of the trail you will see an obvious large boulder (does have routes on it). 150 feet past this boulder (and 200 feet before Upper Buck cliff) is a climber's path that leads north/up a small scree field, then heads left. From the main trail you reach Eagle Cliff in about 10 minutes. There is an attractive, overhanging fingercrack (5.11+) splitting the center of the left wall. UTM 18T 611888 4818476
