Description

The Dairy Queen Wall is located left of Hemingway and the IRS Wall and behind Playhouse Rock and is seen as a large wall with an attractive left and right sides and a somewhat junky looking center.

Getting There

Park as for Hemingway Buttress, in the large, paved parking area and follow the signed Access Fund trail towards Hemingway and then cut left to near the base of the wall. Alternately, one can park as for Playhouse Rock, near the Milepost, and follow the marked trail to Playhouse and then cut right to reach the same point near the base of the wall. Once at the base a bit of scrambling is required to access the base of the wall proper. Plan on 15-20 minutes from the car.

Visited in Feb this year and ticked off Frosty Cone, a fun moderate.

Would have liked to hop on the others nearby but, just as we were finishing up this one, a group of 20+ yahoos in bright tights showed up, hauling several guitars up the 4th class scramble. Despite dropping down 4 or 5 topropes, barely any of them ended up climbing, instead amassing at the base of DQ wall. Pretty good way to ruin a peaceful day in nature!

Hopefully my experience was atypical of the area. Apr 26, 2013
