Rogers Rock is a 700' Slab that rises right out of Lake George. You don't need to go to Thailand, Summersville Lake or Arcadia to get on some cool routes rising out of the water... and unlike those other places - these are all 3 pitch climbs!
The climbs must be approached by boat, unless you want a miserable 4 hour bushwack to start your day, which adds a real sense of adventure to the day.
Climbs vary in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.9 (or harder?)
The face gets A LOT of sun in the summer time - wear some heavy SPF if you plan on workin' that back tan of yours.
Take 9N 3 miles past Hague to Roger's Rock State Campground. You'll need a boat to get to the base of the cliff, and there are options: you can drive a little farther north on 9 and rent a canoe for more money than it's worth, bring your own boat, or pay the local deck-hands to ferry you out to the base of your climb.

I see some comments about wanting 2 ropes for the rap (little finger). anyone know how essential this is? I'm going to be travelling thru on a motorcycle and won't have space for a second rope.

You can rap the trees with just one rope.

Are these the only routes at Rogers Rock? I was exploring this area and found 2 cliff faces beside the "main cliff" which has the route Little Finger. This cliff was a little dirty and had some lose rocks on it. Was fun to explore.
