Description

Small section of cliff with interesting overhangs. Just west from Three Bears (which does not have overhangs). Bottom 20-25 feet of the wall is steep, then gentle for another 20 feet or so above.

For setting up Top-Ropes, a long static line is needed, with some skill in dealing with the upper gentle section.

Simplest way to reach top of cliff is to walk west along base past Munsee and Ramapaugh boulders to the junction with the trail up to Good Books wall. Turn Right onto this trail and hike/scramble up steep hill. A little way horizontal on trail, then head off right gentle uphill to reach top of Dave's Wall cliff. The top section is much less than vertical, so requires some careful scrambling down to get the anchor point into a good position for belaying the top-roping from the bottom of the cliff.

Getting There

From the normal Powerlinez parking, walk to the bottom of the Tower Wall , then 50 yards west on a flat (passing under the Three Bears slab) to reach the bottom of Dave's.
(GPS latitude longitude approx N41.1450 W74.1658)
Another way to get there is about 200 meters up the easier normal road/trail toward Basilisk and Good Book (about a 150 meters West after a trail goes off up to Tower Wall), turn Right (N) off the dirt road and scramble up a little directly under the electric power tower (GPS lat long N41.14443 W74.16625), about 40 meters North, then bear Right and go flat on trail about 50 meters ENE, look N and see Dave's Wall.
