I have only top roped but am looking to do some sport. I am wondering if there are any pre anchored clips and any easy first timer sport routes here. I donít want to cam or bolt. I just want something to quickdray to. Is this available here, preferably around 5.5 - 5.6 for my very first time. Any recommendations?

I just flipped through the listings in Adirondack Rock for the Beer Walls -- bunches of fairly easy gear leads, and some top-ropable stuff (from the descriptions), but doesn't look like very much sport at all -- spotted a couple in the 5.10 range.

Like you said I also have ADK Rock there are no walls around that area that are consistently bolted. According to the guidebook you will find the most sport climbing in the Lake George area like Buck mtn. and Rodgers slab also has some bolted lines. Keep in mind that the majority of the routes that are bolted in the Adirondacks start at higher grades like 5.11b.

There's a list of sport climbs here: http://www.facebook.com/...acks/183018281780753

Your post is unclear, you say you don't want to cam or bolt, do you mean you don't want to place cams or drill bolts, and want preplaced bolts that you clip quickdraws(not drays) to? Do you have the requisite gear already? Do you know how to clean routes? Your local gym would be a good place to start

It seems you're in luck with the quarry area in the list referenced in JimLawyer's post. However, in general, in most areas in the country, there are relatively few sport routes below 5.8. More are being created because of the apparent need, and there are definitely more now than 10 years ago, but still there are hundreds of sport crags where the easiest routes are 5.10.
