There are a few routes at the King Wall, one of which stands out as especially good one -- Cheese and Crackers.

The main wall is steep, tall, and black. Ice does form on this wall, but it bakes in the early-morning sun and crashes down with alarming regularity. So far, nothing has been completed on the main wall. There are some routes on the far left, where the wall is shorter and slabbier, and of course, Cheese and Crackers, which is located on a sub-wall right of the main wall (and closer to the parking).

Getting There 

Park as for Chapel Pond Slab. (If conditions allow, you can park at the trailhead directly across from Jewels and Gem.)

Walk towards Malfunction Junction over the height of land in front of Chapel Pond Slab, and continue to the beginning of a guard rail on the right side of the road. Drop over the edge of the road and hike through flat woods, then uphill. Pick up a stream and follow this steeply uphill to the wall on the right.

Cheese and Crackers is a classic, Dacks testpiece. It faces east, so it's good for cold, sunny, early mornings.The route forms in two pieces that, when thick, connect to form a continuous, steep pitch. When thinner, there will be a short rock section, with decent protection, that is required to connect the two sections.You can see the route when driving from Malfunction Junction towards Chapel Pond. You can assess the conditions from here....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
