Description

Located behind the Emperor Slab is the tremendous King Wall. This wall, at roughly 300', hosts some of the Adirondacks premier hard face routes. When looked at, the cliff resembles a large concave face; gently overhanging at the center right end, and it seems relatively devoid of anything climbable. As a result, many of the routes here are bolt protected and very thin.

Unlike the easy access to many Adirondack crags, this mysterious cliff is guarded from the road by a 25 minutes uphill slog through a thick forest and a wet, loose gully.

This cliff IS worth the hike, even if you aren't a climber. It is truly a magical place with a very powerful aura unlike anything else you've experienced in the Dacks.

Getting There

The "trailhead" is located on route 73 directly across the road from the Jewels and Gems Wall trail at the north end of the guard rail. Follow this trail through the woods where it is intermittently broken up by a steep, wet, and mossy wash. You'll pass a shorter wall on your right--this is NOT it--keep going for another 2-3 minutes. You can't miss it.
