Views of Upper and Lower Washbowl, Creature Walls ...
Home to high concentration of climbs in the Adirondacks. The rock here is anorthosite - an unusual rock in that it's relatively rare, and is formed in ways that scientists don't fully understand. We call it "granite" - more to the point, exfoliating granite.
Take I-87 North to Exit 30 (way the heck up there); make a LEFT at the end of the exit ramp, and follow Rt 9 as it winds up a gradual hill. At a confusing intersection (known locally as malfunction junction), continue straight onto Route 73 and follow this northwest. About 2.5 further you will arrive at the pull off for Spanky's area. Shortly after comes the Chapel Pond Slabs (absolutely can't miss them towering over the road), and in a matter of seconds, you'll reach Chapel Pond itself. This is the heart of the Keene Valley Region.

Some aspects of your description match Moss Cliff. Actually, I can think of no other 3-pitch-high cliff with a river crossing.
