Description 

Home to the greatest 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.


Getting There 

Take I-87 North to Exit 30 (way the heck up there); make a right at the end of the exit ramp, and start looking around. You'll come upon Chapel Pond, Emperor Slab, and a few others in short order.
