DescriptionFound in 1982, the Beer Walls have become, without a doubt, the most popular crag in Keene Valley due to its' accessibility, ease of top-roping, and many climbs with moderate difficulty.
With such a large variety of climbs from 5.4 to 5.13b, the Beer Walls can be rather busy on beautiful weekend days. But where else can climbers go to enjoy the richest Adirondack views without having to scale the slabs of Chapel Pond, or endure the steep approach and walls of Washbowl? Though this may be the case, there is ALWAYS something to climb.
Beware: Although the cliffs sit low on a hillside and are guarded by many trees. Therefore, the rock can remain damp even for a couple of days after it has rained.
Getting ThereMost climbers park at the wide shoulder Just north of the Spider's Web. Walk north along the road to a steep trail that leaves the road about 100 yards away from the parking.
Head uphill. The path splits at the crest of the hill and several trails lead you to various destinations, and there is a porta potty off to the right. Continue straight to the height of land. You are now on top of the Upper Beer Wall on its (climber's) left end.
Most of the trails are very easy to navigate, and are laid out to minimize erosion, so try to stay on the paths at all times.
