"Are We There Yet?" WI4, FA C. Sypniewsk...

The Old Forge area is a patchwork of private and public property. Please respect private property and posted signs, and avoid climbing or trespassing on private property unless you have permission from the landowner.

Description 

The Old Forge Region contains some of the most undeveloped and vast wilderness around. Needless to say, it also holds some incredible ice and rock climbing. You may reference the Lawyer/Haas "Adirondack Rock" guidebook for the potential rock climbing areas. The ice routes within this region are still being developed and the area is evolving into its own little niche' for those involved. As noted, Please respect the land and property boundaries, and keep the area pristine.

Getting There 

From Utica NY, Take route 12 to 28. This will take you directly into the center of Old Forge. More precise directions will be added soon.

Featured Route For Old Forge Region
Shiver Me Timbers is the crack through the roof with the tree. Lichen or Not climbs the face to the right past the up-side-down staircase to the fingercrack.

Lichen or Not 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  NY : Adirondacks : ... : Eagle Falls
A super excellent and sustained route that combines hard face climbing with steep cracks. Originally rated .10d, a key hold broke, making the face climbing start considerably more difficult.Climb up the wide crack of Shiver Me Timbers for a few feet, then move right onto the face past 3 bolts to gain a fingertip crack. Continue straight up the crack system with excellent gear and great stemming to a fixed anchor at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
