Get directions to here using Google Maps.
A good variety of (mostly) single-pitch routes with a short, generally easy, approach. And, many routes have cliff-top access for easy top-roping.
A small crag in itself, with some 100 routes. This is a set of walls on the south side of NY 73 as it goes through Chapel Pond pass, about 1/2 a mile west of the Chapel Pond pull out. Unlike many of the walls in the pass, these (mostly) face away from the road, over a ridge, and tend to be far more isolated from road noise.
On Adirondack state park land, and follows those (really quite generous) access rules.
Depends on the exact wall, but generally park at the pull-off about 1/2 mile west of the Chapel Pond (park labelled) pullout, then walk a bit farther west to the obvious log bridge and trail. Then follow the trail (through various branchings to different cliffs) generally up and over the ridge to the cliffs.
10-15 minutes and generally easy going.
