Description

Chips Wall is an eastern continuation of the Upper S-Curve cliff band and is below the Above and Beyond Wall. It is south-facing and sunny, even in the winter. The approach is not well marked, and isn't much fun, so crowds are no problem. There are terrific views of the Millstone from this area.
There is some choss on lower sections of the wall, but that isn't the part of the wall that you came to climb. There are terrific diagonalling cracks that are nearly horizontal in places on the face above the large roof band that splits the wall. There are some water streaks (and water) on the wall, which adds to the adventure.

Getting There

Park in the first pullout on the north side of the road after passing the S-Curve. There is a bicycle sign and a pine tree with the top chopped off at the pullout. Just to the West of the sign and cut pine tree, there is a small talus slope. Climb the faint trail on the left for about 150 feet. Traverse through the brush towards the first ramp. From the top of the ramp, you can see the wall, but one last brushy traverse remains. The physically fit can make it to the base of the crag in 15 minutes if they're not afraid of getting scratched while bushwacking.
