Description

Easy access. Clean rock. Toprope paradise. King Phillips Spring Wall is split into a left and right side, split by a gully that serves as the approach trail. Adirondack Rock reports one route on each side but also indicates there are plenty of other options as the rock on both sides is clean with good friction and cracks. The tops of both sides are easily reached from the top of the gully before it descends to the base of the cliff. Some gear and static rope/webbing is needed for setting TRs as trees are not readily available near the edge of the cliff.

Getting There

From exit 30 turn onto route 9 heading north (towards Lake Placid). Immediately, there is a large pulloff on the left, often with a food truck guy there. Park. Follow a flat wide trail that angles back toward the highway before curving right and climbing up and then down a gully that splits the two sides of the cliff. Easy hiking. 15 mintues.

15 min. walk from the pull off, sick to the trail. When we noticed we were getting close, we saw the sky breaking through the trees and we broke path before the gully and came out on the top of the "right side." We cut off about 30 meters early before the gully. The path takes you through the gully, so if you start to notice the trail is descending, and you have walls on either side of you, you're in the gully. You will figure it out. IMPORTANT info: no bolts for anchors!!! Don't be discouraged, tons of strong trees near ledge but bring enough webbing. I didn't... Next time I'll bring 2x 20 meters of webbing to make it to the ledge. Easy access from bottom to top, just take the gully back up! My 60 meter rope will reach the bottom of most of the right side. But the left side is much taller. This wall looks easy but it is steep, I can't say how it was to climb since we didn't bring enough anchor gear but we rappelled and there were plenty of cracks in the smooth surface for maneuvering your way up. Great for beginners, fun for intermediates. Stay safe... Climb at your own risk. Aug 30, 2015
