Have you hiked up to check it out yet? If not I'd start there. There's tons of rock in that hillside.

Yea been there heaps, I would just like to know if there are any routes on there so I don't end up getting in trouble and having to leave half my rack behind. There does not seem to be any info anywhere about this wall. It must have some thing on it?

Some one out there has to have at least a hand drawn topo of the wall some where around?

Stop by Wilson's and talk to Tai. Bring doubles so you have to leave less gear if you need to bail. There's always natural stuff up there to rap off of if the route turns to sh!te.

No, Tai is the REALLY tall guy who works at Wilsons. He should be able to provide you with as much info as there is on it...

Hard to tell but I am pretty sure it is, if what I have been looking at is infact the great escape wall, the amount of info out there on it is little to none.

If you need all this info you most likely aren't ready for it. Not everything has supertopo move by move and gear placement beta. Just go up there and get on it.

Go find one. Is it that hard to comprehend that you have to resort to getting your panties in a bunch?

Jerry,

Thanks for the pics. I did the North ridge a few weeks ago and don't have that guide. Is there a topo of it in that guide?

Edited to add: Don't worry about Hobo. Some have it some don't.

Nope. No topo. Just this:

"North Ridge 5.9* This climb ascends the right skyline of the upper half of Wells Peak. The crux will be found in the steeper first few pitches. Above, many easier pitches lead up the classic knife-edge ridge. The best approach for this route is up Wells Canyon."

Not worried about Hobo. Its Sunday afternoon. If you are on the internet you are probably drunk... ;-)
