Description 

Southern Adirondack Mountain with several cliffs at its base, forming several clusters of good ice climbing.
Unlike most SAdk locales, the approach is short, 20 minutes to Starbuck Central for example.
All the routes on Starbuck face south. As such, they get a lot of insolation. Many of the routes, especially the steeper, more exposed ones, get baked out by mid-February. Most seasons will be short-lived.


Getting There 

From the Northway, take exit 25 Chestertown. Head south on Route 8 to Wevertown. At the traffic light, turn right onto Route 28. Drive through the towns of North Creek and North River, after which you will begin climbing a long hill. At its crest, look for Cleveland Road on the left. Turn onto this road and park immediately. Cross Rt. 28 and walk due north toward the foot of mountain. Be aware that private land lies close to either side, stay within the state land boundary. You will cross Raquette Brook and several low spots which may be wet in warm years, but no dangerous water.
