If we're thinking of the same area, I've visited there, but haven't had the opportunity to do much climbing- mostly bouldering. I was at an area which is supposedly on private land, with an access trail running near a small lake, which is near I684. Is this the same one you're talking about?

If anybody wants specific directions and beta about this place send me a note to my mail box. I have never been but my regular partner lives there and goes all the time.

Hey Paul,

I think I've met you once or twice with Bobby. Anyway, I've been climbing at Armonk for around 10 years so if anyone needs the lowdown send me an email. There are approximately 25 climbs ranging from 5.6-5.13. Everything is toproped and the bolts that were on one climb (Monomania) were chopped a few years ago. There is a classic 5.10 climb that I use for reference at every other crag I've ever gone to. It's called "Canutility" (not sure if that's the right spelling). The cliff is about 50 ft at its highest point. Like the Gunks, the rating is stiff and it requires strong fingers.

It's between the Canutility route (5.10) and S&B (5.12).
