DescriptionWallface is the largest and tallest cliff of NY state: almost 800' of very steep rock. With its quite long access from the end of the road and rather undefined access to the base of the cliff, Wallface definitely has an alpine dimension. Don't be scared though, climbing this huge cliff is really very interesting and enjoyable!
Getting TherePark at the abandoned village of Upper Works, near Henderson lake. Follow the path (often very muddy ...) towards Indian Pass. You can go up to Summit Rock to have a look at the cliff and chose a line of access in the bush from there. Another option is to leave the path just before it crosses the stream for the last time and follow some cairns to the base of the cliff. This latter option is much faster and very convenient but won't give you the opportunity to have a general look at the cliff .
Budget about 3h from the car to the base of the cliff if you go for the quick option. Add at least 30 minutes if you stop by summit rock.
