Lower Washbowl Cliffs

  • Rt 73
    Keene Valley

These lower cliffs are the only free-standing pinnacles in the Adirondacks. There's loose rock here, so use care.

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

Subject to periodic closures due to peregrine nesting seasons. Consult the DEC webpage, Adirondack Rock Climbing Route Closures, for the latest information.
