Description 

This is a small cliff area visible a hundred or so feet off the trail to the left just before the trail rises steeply to the summit. The cliff ranges from 40-70 feet high and there are many opportunities for good routes if some time is committed to cleaning. Top-roping is also easily set up using trees at the top.


Getting There 

Follow the trail to Cat mountain until a few minutes below the summit. Hike off the trail to the left(North) to reach the cliff. Hiking off the trail on the opposite(right-hand, South) side takes you to the base of the Summit Cliff area.

Climb up the crack in the flared corner to a good rest stance at some blocks below an overlap. Use the off-width crack to climb over the overlap to a ledge atop a large flake. Creep left to a perch at the end of the ledge. Step left and climb up the improbable, mossy, dirty off-width(crux) to a ledge with thick trees below a small unprotected slab. Avoid the slab by pushing through the trees until it is possible to gain the top. Belay from tree(s) on top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
