Description

Large wall right of the Cheeks and above Duck Wall.

Getting There

Three approaches.

1) Hike the Upper Wall trail, then follow the trail right along the base of the Cheeks. Cross the gully to the Diamond.

2) Hike up to Duck Wall at Lookout Point, then either do a route to its top or follow the gully on its left side. This gully generally has water rushing down until mid-summer, but one can skirt along its right edge at the bottom, then cross to the left side midway up. As of January 2017, there is a fixed line to help keep you stable on the wet rock steps (Thanks to Derek P.)

3) Hike to the top of Lookout Point, then skirt left (southwest) along the top of Lookout Point and Duck Wall.

Early in spring when the gully is full of water, route 1) is probably best for the Diamond; otherwise taking the gully in 2) is easier and faster.

But for the Collegium, route 3) is probably fastest at all times of year.

as of 1/25, most of the new rebar rungs leading the way up the gully to the diamond are NOT GLUED IN. Most of them wiggle and can easily be pulled out. it'll be super sick when it's all finished tho.. thanks to whoever is getting after it up there! Jan 26, 2019 · Temporary Report
