About Mountain Road Cliff (a.k.a. - Agamenticus Cliff):

The 15 to 35 foot high cliff is found just below just below Mountain Road at the base of Mount Agamenticus in York. The hillside has several individual faces separated by spaces of broken rock, talus and scree. Though offering few climbs, most of the lines are quite fun and are quickly accessed from the road. This is one of the few crags in the area that saw any development before 1999. Climbers have definitely been climbing the Double Diamond for many years. Be warned: there is a lot of glass and garbage below the roadside viewpoint. Both the Garbage Face and the Roof Face are littered with glass. People have been dumping garbage over the edge for decades. A most shameful act! The most embarrassing part is that this land is part of state conservation land! The rest of the various walls are clean and free of litter of any kind. Nearby pay campgrounds can be found along Rouet 1A in York.
Nearest town or city: York
Directions: Take Route 95 into York. Get off at the York exit (exit 7). If you are coming from the south take a left off of the exit. After only a few hundred feet the road ends at a commuter parking lot. Just before it dead-ends take a right hand turn onto Chase’s Pond Road. If you are coming from the north take the right hand fork of the exit ramp which will bring you out onto Chase’s Pond Road. As you follow the road it will eventually turn into Mount Agamenticus Road but you won’t be able to tell the difference. Follow the road for several miles. 100 yards After the road becomes dirt stop at a sharp right corner. Park on the side of the road 50 feet before the Mountain Road Cliff viewpoint. Either scramble (3rd or 4th class) down to the base from the viewpoint or walk 100 feet further west up the road to open woods. Walk downhill and to the right to a trail that starts at the top of the Left End. Total approach time is around 2 minutes.
