An enormous area in the state of New York, the Adirondacks are tremendous in every way. They offer a thrilling, gorgeous glimpse into the natural environment of the northeast United States. They also offer some fun outdoor opportunities as well. One such opportunity is the abundance of rock climbing options, which you can enjoy during this trip.

Lasting for one, or several days, during this rock climbing trip, we will guide you to and through some of the best climbing spots in the Adirondacks. One of those spots is the Infinite Crags. This area has several fantastic crags to climb, including Deadwater, the Beer Walls and the Spider’s Web. There is also the Poke-O-Moonshine. In this area, you can enjoy challenging, steep, multi-pitch routes, including Fastest Gun (5.10a), Bloody Mary (5.9) and Gamesmanship (5.8). This area also has some great views of the Green Mountains of Vermont and Lake Champlain.

On the Adirondack Slides, there are difficult faces that can lead you to the summit of Giant Mountain. Those faces include the Gothics’ North and the South Faces. Finally, on the High Peaks, which are in the middle of Mt. Colden, you can enjoy the California Flake route (5.9) and the Diagonal route (5.8).

Adventure Spirit

Mountain Guide

At Adventure Spirit we provide Rock, Ice and Alpine Experiences. We are based in the Northeast, USA (Winter), and Pacific Northwest, USA (Spring/Summer).

Our guide operations are led by Kel Rossiter. After stints in the military, the corporate world, and a Zen monastery, Kel began pursuing climbing as his professional passion. A Washington native, his first summit was an all-cotton ascent of Mt. Adams (12,281'). Fortunately, he went on to get appropriate training and since then he has climbed and guided rock and ice in twelve different countries on four continents. Now based in Vermont for most of the year, Kel owns and operates Adventure Spirit LLC, a rock, ice, and alpine guide service specializing in Northeastern climbing destinations.

Kel is also active in higher education, serving as a faculty member/instructor at several area colleges and holding a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies. He has complemented his university studies with American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) training, having become an IFMGA Mountain Guide.

Kel is an Ortovox Athlete/Guide Ambassador, and he also enjoys bringing the mountain experience to people through writing and has been published in Climbing Magazine, Alpinist, and The Seattle Times, among others. In between his stints in the mountains, Kel serves on the boards of CRAG-VT, Vermont’s climbing access organization and the Vermont Outdoor Guide Association. And though he left the Zen monastery long ago, he still does see the value found in just sitting still.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
