Climbing w/ Tom - Rogers Rock Slab

Climbing w/ Tom - Rogers Rock Slab

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

The Adirondacks had just been covered with a few feet of snow, and after looking at the extended forecast, it seemed likely that the weekend of March 1st could possibly be the last opportunity this year for photography and snowshoeing in peak winter conditions.
