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

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.

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... ;-)

Well you and I are on the internet. lol That ridge is pretty amazing. We started it on the left side of the north buttress at an obvious short offwidth. Then about 4 pitches later we finally hit the ridge. I'm just curious to find out where the FA party started.

Nope. I'm not the frisbee type. We saw it last week and figured it was someone using it as a water dish for there dog. By the way if you saw that your parking at the wrong spot. lol

'Fly on a Windshield'

Brings back memories...only had 2 bolts in my possession at the time (lack of funds and resources).

Maybe more like dumbasses to believe DR, "...judgment, concentration, boldness - the ordeal by fire, take precedent, as they should, over mere hardware. "

ec,

It's always been my belief that the fewer bolts placed the better. To run it out or not sometimes isn't the question. It's the answer.

Well you park in the parking lot obviously. Follow the obvious trail. Minimal required rack since most routes don't have many more bolts than ec's Fly on a Windshield as I recall.

Never been up there, but every time I drive by - the pink band stands out to me as better rock(?)
