Ask Jim Lawyer or Jeremy Haas. They're working on the new Adirondack guidebook.

Heh, Daks are north north west of Albany, we're talking the other direction ;)

I believe private property is the main issue....

Cropseyville is at about 42.7583, -73.5360. I climbed there a whole lot when I was at RPI (nearby school), but that was 10 years ago. Parking and access was a bit of a concern back then. You had to park a bit up the highway near where the road went over the river and then walk back along the road a few hundred yard where there was an access trail. The trail ran behind the homes in the woods, SW to the crag. There were about 6 top rope routes in the mid to upper 5s, although there is a nice little vertical wall section that had lots of options to play around.

I hesitate to enter this into the system as a climbing area because I don't know if it is still open to public access. Someone who can vouch for it more recently than 10 years ago would be better to do it.

OOps, I meant to say "east of Albany" hehe

Which is to say, east of Troy ;)

I believe access became an issue in 2001 (maybe 2002?) and this area should not be entered into the data base as a result. From what I understand, the only group that even had access to this area was ROC and when ownership changed hands, the new owners refused to even talk to anyone, so as a result, even their access was revoked.

Maybe some day it will open up, however if they are harassed, even that won't be a possibility, heh.

I was mostly curious if the status had changed in the past few years or not.
