DescriptionA dazzling beauty still in the midst of undisturbed wilderness, the Infinity Wall reigns on the easternmost end of the Rumney crags. Stumbling upon it accidentally on a bushwhack home from the upper woods, and not knowing that development had already begun by Brady Libby and friends, Bradley White and Ryan Barber casually called the wall Utopia as a tribute to its magnificence sitting peacefully against series of stony waterfalls and mossy boulders.
All of the climbs listed in the 2009 Rumney Guidebook are towards the righthand end; the three prominent 5.11 cracks (Ass, Grass, and Gas respectfully) being on the upper level of the righthand side of the crag. As you work your way right to left at the base you will be dazzled by the deep overhanging caves which marks the home "Victim or the Crime" (V5) as well as the intimidating "Overclang Underhang" (5.12c).
With no real signs to mark the way, this cliff remains one of Rumney's undiscovered treasures, and thus Brady Libby named the wall "Infinity" as there is a near infinite plethora of unclimbed potential waiting to be explored.
Getting ThereFrom the parking lot, walk right Past the Bakery and bushwhack through the woods several hundred yards. Don't be mistaken by the small crag a few hundred feet right of the Bakery. Keep walking up the beaten woodland pathways staying left, inward, and up the hillside until you come across the lower sections of the Infinity Wall. Be aware that this approach may be on private property and that National Forrest access is to hike the trail past the New Wave Wall; at the top of the gully, but still below the Kennel Wall, angle off right and then continue over the other side of the ridge, to a seasonal river which runs directly beneath a surprisingly long series of pretty crags which are mostly unclimbed.
