Scott Arno below the main face of Azure Mountain

Description 

This is the largest and most consistent portion of cliffs at Azure Mountain. It features a few seldom-visited but generally high-quality rock and ice routes.

Getting There 

Once passing the Sidewalk Cafe Area(the first series of cliffs encountered above the climbers' trail), continue to contour around the mountain, reminding yourself not to gain elevation. Eventually you will come to the main face approached via a large talus field. If you go too high you can still get back down via some sketchy bushwhacking. To access the base of certain features some potentially sketchy slabs/steps may have to be negotiated so be careful... this isn't the kind of place you want to break an ankle.

Drip Brewed WI3 M2 PG13  NY : Adirondacks : ... : Main Face
This was climbed in mid-November and so may fill out more later in the season. Climbs the left facing, right leaning ramp to the right of "the chiller"- see ADK rock. The ramp should fill in with enough ice to allow screw placements, otherwise it can be lead with a standard rack and a little bit of creativity. Fighting the barn door effect is key. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
