Description [Suggest Change]
Known for ice climbing (the ice route "Polar Soldier"), this wall has yielded some excellent summer routes in recent years. Sections of the cliff are black and scoured clean by ice, and some sections are overhanging with scaly, blocky rock. There are some cracks too, and clean slabs on the left.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Park at the Whiteface ski center, at the Kids Campus. There is a trailhead here for Bear Den. Follow the Upper Connector trail, then go left at the first intersection, right at the next, left at the next, then right at the next. Go 60 paces and find a cairn in the woods on the left (there's a hard-to-find sling around the base of a beech tree here). Follow the cairns to the Polar Soldier Wall.
