DescriptionThe Quarry Wall is highest point of the Necedah backbone. Because of it's height it is easily seen from the road and offers excellent views. Like the Y-Crack Wall, the Quarry Wall faces West.
Most of the climbing is found on the right side of the wall, with bolted lines in the 5.10-5.12 range. This part of the wall features perfect stone and blocky, intimidating, roofs. The slabbier and taller left side receives a bit less attention, but some good and deceptively hard bolted and gear climbs breach the wall.
All in all, the Quarry Wall is a perfect supplement to the more popular Y-Crack area.
Getting ThereFollow the descriptions to the Y-Crack wall, then continue along the fin of rock. When faced with the decision to go up or down, choose the higher option, as the right side of the Quarry wall starts off a ledge quite high above the road.
To access the left wall, scramble down from the raised ledge (4th class).
