Description

Although the left side of the Dairy Queen Wall shares the same name as the more popular right side most people are wholly unfamiliar with the lesser visited side. That's too bad as there are some really good routes on this side and the approach is actually shorter as well.

The right side of the DQ Wall is characterized by juggy moderate cracks (hence it's popularity) while the left side has smoother greyish rock with the odd dark knob.

Getting There

Park as for Hemingway Buttress, in the large, paved parking area and follow the signed Access Fund trail towards Hemingway and then cut left to near the base of the wall.

Alternately, one can park as for Playhouse Rock, near the Milepost, and follow the marked trail to Playhouse and then cut right to reach the same point near the base of the wall.

Once near the base a bit of scrambling 

is required to access the base of the wall proper; if you hit it right you should arrive at the base of Norm.
