A generally very busy area, as 1) it's right along the road, and 2) it has routes varying from WI2 to WI4+ in difficulty, including some that are over 100' long. Most of the routes range from WI3-4, with many different lines. Access to the top of the routes is simple, albeit strenuous - walk down the road to the end of the rock band, and hike up the steep slope to the top (there used to be a parking space here, but it has since been barred by extending the guardrail - look for two large drains just past the rock wall, to mark the spot); walk back along the top of the cliff, drop a rope. Bring plenty of static line/webbing for anchors; there is no place to put in gear, nor any bolted anchors.
Take I-87 to Exit 20 (Saugerties). From the toll booth, make a left onto Rte 32N. Follow Rte 32N until it intersects with Rte 32A (6 miles). Merge onto Rte 32A and follow that until you reach Rte 23A. Make a left onto 23A; follow until you reach a bridge with obvious ice flow on the left. Continue along the road for about 1 mile to a parking area on the left (enough for a good amount of cars) and carefully walk back along the road to the climbing area.

The obvious route is the left-facing corner with the telephone pole at the bottom. Can use a 60m rope for TR, but bring long enough static line to ensure that the rope reaches....[more] Browse More Classics in NY
