Little Finger in Lake George is a 600ft 3 pitch 5.5 climb on Rogers Rock slab. I first found the route by doing some searching on Mountain Project (a rock climbing resource). I was looking to find an easy multi-pitch climb in the Adirondacks, one that gets you high off the ground without much technical climbing. 

It’s such an admired climb for a few reasons. One of the reasons is the adventure of getting to the climb. You have to take a boat to the base of the slab of rock, as there is no hike to the base. So we rented a canoe from Rogers Rock Campground, packed all of our climbing gear, and paddled over. Rogers Rock Campground is the closest point to put a boat in and is about 1 mile from the climb. Another reason is that there is a crack all the way up the climb. This is a climb without fixed bolts on the way up, so you have to place pieces of rock climbing gear while you climb to protect a fall. A crack all the way up allows you to protect very well. Lastly, the view is unbelievable for the whole entire climb.

Key Gear Needed:

  • A Boat (we rented from Rogers Rock Campground)
  • (2) 60m ropes (for the repel)
  • (1) set of nuts
  • Double Cams of .3-1
  • 8-10 alpine draws
  • Anchor gear
  • Helmets

One of the best parts about owning a canoe has been that in addition to transporting me to previously inaccessible locations for photography, the canoe itself makes for an entertaining photo subject and has been my photography muse this summer.

My favorite waterfall photos are often taken while standing right in the water, and this one was no exception. This helps to get the viewer closer to the action and make them feel as if they’re about to get wet themselves.
