Spanky's Wall

  • Rt 73, Keene Valley

A long wall in Chapel Pond Pass with several distinct and unique sections offering great views of the valley from the topout. With a collection of moderate to hard semi-bolted routes, as well as several easy trad leads, this area is gorgeous, versatile, and relatively quiet.

How to get there

Park in the pull-off about 1.5 miles south of the Chapel Pond parking area. The roughly 15 minute hike begins on the opposite side of the road.

Rock climbing

Spanky's Wall offers a fairly wide array of difficulty, with nine climbs documented in the 5.4 to 5.6 range, and several of each grade all the way up to 5.11c. We always recommend picking up a guidebook like Adirondack Rock for more info on specific areas or climbs.
