Climbing adventure year round

Rock climb in the Whiteface region — and get close to the edge. Here you'll find a variety of climbs from adrenaline-pumping multi-pitch routes to easy and scenic climbs on sunny rock faces.

If you're a beginner or just looking for some practice, head to the Notch Mountain slabs. Offering a short, easy climb to the top, lots of protection and beautiful views of the Ausable River, the Notch slabs are said to be some of the best introductory climbs anywhere. Access the rocks from the northern trail to Copperas Pond.

Rock Climbing in WilmingtonFor something more challenging, try Moss Cliff, located across from Notch Mountain. The 500-foot granite wall features multi-pitch crack climbs — and some of the toughest routes in the Adirondacks. At the top, relax among views of the Great Range and glimpse picturesque peregrine falcons soaring above.

During the winter season, popular ice climbing routes include the Multiplication Gully, Whiteface Mountain and Chiller Pillar, located across from the toll house on the Memorial Highway.

Whatever season you visit, rock climbing in the Whiteface Region won't disappoint. View the list of Whiteface hotels and start planning your Adirondack rock climbing trip today.
