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

Great Camps Sagamore and Santanoni
Great Camps Sagamore and Santanoni

For a birthday getaway this past year, we decided to take a mini-tour of some of the Adirondack Great Camps. The first stop of the weekend was Camp Sagamore to hike a portion of the Sagamore Lake Loop and the Cascades Trail. The next day, we made our way to Camp Santanoni. Grabbing our mountain bikes and packing some snacks, we set out on the Newcomb Lake Road Trail, a 5-mile former carriage road that extends from the trailhead at the Gate Lodge to Newcomb Lake.

The typical wedding morning can no doubt be a whirlwind, with places to go, things to do, and people to see. This past October, when it came time for my wife and I to tie the knot, we took a different route. One that reflected not only our love for each other, but also our love for the Adirondack wilderness and the part it played in bonding us together over the past year and a half.

With Lucy and Birdie leading the way, the four of us followed on our snowshoes, starting out by walking beside a stream for a little over half a mile. A bridge crossing took the trail beyond the stream and eventually past an area of blow-down and eventually Windfall Pond.
