Chapel Pond Area

This is perhaps the most varied and popular area in the Adirondacks. The ice is quite reliable and forms early. Chapel Pond Slab is a low-angled slab with easy to moderate climbing. High pressure water can reside under this slab, use caution. Chouinard's Gully offers continuous moderate climbing and is one of the most popular lines in the area. Challenging climbs in Chapel Pond Canyon are easily accessed from the frozen lake. Following a prolonged and deep freeze you might want to try your hand at Roaring Brook Falls.

Chapel Pond Trailhead: South on Route 73 from Lake Placid, past Keene Valley, look for Chapel Pond canoe launching site.
