What's the status on the land south of LC? The Parcel Viewer says it's NYS land, #08500100010090000000. SW of the Preserve, east of PIPC/Dickie Barre area. I always assumed that was PIPC land and never explored .

That's the Park Quanto. If you walk the High Peterskill's trail southwest you cross over onto Minnewaska after about 10 or 15 minutes

You can reach the base of the Nose with no real talus.

Whitehorse Slab has, what, a minute, plus walking up the driveway, maybe 3 total? And Cathedral's not much more. Parts of Rumney are about the same, though steeper. CP Slab is a contender certainly vs the epic Poke-O approach of 10 minutes or more.

Compared with these, Lost City is almost as remote a wilderness destination as Ragged Mountain, in terms of approach time.

I've ice climbed the Outback Slab but have not rock climbed there. Technically, you'd need a MP day or seasonal pass there as well. RC

Do you like slabs? It's a nice change of pace, but not a lot to do there.

Maybe some ground-up routes, but it was wet the one time I headed down, and looked thin once you pulled up onto the slab.

Like others, I've only been on the OB Slab when it was ice-covered. Art Gran's original Gunks guide lists two rock routes (without grades).

Art's Route: Starts by going over an overhang from a block on a platform at the left.

Dave's Route: Face climbing a bit right of center.

Presumably, "Art" is Art Gran and "Dave" is Dave Craft.

If you TR, there maybe several "routes". You set up an anchor up top, lower the climber down, and they climb back up. It's a pretty big slab so it's possible there are a lot to do. We did a few laps and then headed down to see what we could do ground-up.
