Overview

Cheese and Crackers - FA Tom Yandon and Glen Villeneuve 1986

This area is home to climbs Gone Crackers (NEI 4 100'), Ritz and Cheddar (NEI 4 M6 100'), Cheese and Crackers (NEI 5 100') and its variation Just Crackers (NEI 5)

This is the most prominent set of drips near the King Wall area. Hidden back from the road one only gets a glimpse when approaching Chapel Pond to the left.

Getting There

Heading on Route 73 towards Keene north of Malfunction Junction park near a bend on the road when King Wall becomes visible (large black cliff set back from the road) you can also park as for the Jewels and Gems wall a common rock climbing area in the summer.

Once parked descend until a streambed is reached and follow it up to the base of the climb. Expect at least 300 feet gain on approach. We encountered knee to waist deep snow and the hike does get steep near the end.
