Description

Prospect Point Rampart contains some of the best climbing, and longest climbs, at the Lake. The area begins with a short cliff near Prospect Point Pinnacle and ends just north of the Lost Face. The area also contains Dark Wall, a shorter cliff band below the main cliff.

Access to the base of the cliff in this area can be gained by either rappelling down or taking the climbers trail just south of Prospect Point Pinnacle. If you use the climbers trail to access anything north of Big Toe, stay below the Dark Wall cliff band when walking north or you'll run into a 20' drop.

Getting There

To find Prospect Point Rampart hike along the West Bluff Trail from either the north or south. The Lost Face section of the Rampart is located just north of the junction of the West Bluff Trail and the Park Service Road (a gravel road that comes in from South Shore Rd). Great Chimney is just south of this junction, and Prospect Point Pinnacle is about 75 yards south of the junction.
