Climb Whiteface Slides (intermediate to advanced) (place holder)
Whiteface has some of the most recognizable slides in the Adirondacks. Ranging from class 2 to 4+, these slides offer an intermediate to advanced slide climber the opportunity to ascend this 46er without the aid of hiking trails. However, unlike many slides in the Adirondacks, these are polished in nature and often wet and mossy. Climbing here is much more of a challenge then the grades would indicate based on steepness alone, some people consider the base of the slides the source of Adirondack black flies, others just refer to it as a hell hole. As such, very few people actually climb them. **this is just a place holder, more specific trip information will be posted shortly.**

What we're about

Welcome to the Climbing, Caving, Canyoneering & MOUNTAINEERING Group of the Capital Region, NY!

I'm your organizer, Justin.

Located dead center between the Gunks and Adirondacks, and within a half day drive of the climbing venues of Vermont and New Hampshire, we are situated amongst of the best rock and ice climbing in the US. There are also many expansive cave systems and canyons in the region.

If you have any IDEAS -any at all-, new venues or places you'd love to climb, cave, hike, camp or any other outdoor (or indoor) adventure ideas feel free to shoot them my way. I'll gladly add them to the event calendar.

The whole purpose of this group is so that people in north eastern NY, the Hudson and Mohawk Valleys, and western New England can find and network with other outdoor enthusiasts, build solidarity, and hopefully gain some reliable climbing partners.

Anyone can join, of any skill level.

If you want to learn a new skill, even if you're afraid of heights you can learn how to climb, cave, canyoneer or mountaineer. Challenging your fears by taking small controllable bites/steps.
