Note that this wall is not the same as the "Diagonal" area in the Summmit section of Crane Mt. I guess the Summit area gets it's name from the diagonal cracks that run across it -- while this section in the SouthEast area gets its name from the steep slope up from left to right across the base of the wall.
approach -- roughly 500 vertical feet of uphill hiking from the road, over less than a mile of horizontal distance.

Thank you, Ken, this is correct. Honestly, the nomenclature for the summit cliffs is awful. The Summit's Diagonal Wall turns out to be little more than a boundary between two other areas, across which at least one route goes - meaning it traverses *3* "walls". It's a symptom of the haphazard development up there over two decades. We hope to remedy that problem before the next edition of the Adirondack Rock Guidebook.
The Diagonal Ramp Wall is an appropriate name for this crag, since it lies along the obvious diagonal walk-up ramp running behind the Isobuttress.
