Don't have a photo of Celeno with me but here's an 8,500' face. It's not a "big wall" but...

Holy sh#t mr kelly! I couldn't believe it when I first saw the Captain...I can't wrap my mind around something as big as that which you speak. You guys out doing that stuff have my deepest respect.

Likely none on the rock. Don't think theres a 5500' line up that rock though.. looks a bit smaller than that offhand. Rock looks .. alot worse than yosemite too. But hey what isn't?

Jay Claus and Kevin Ditzler made the only ascent of Celeno a few years ago. There's a write up in the AAJ.

Carlos Buhl and Charlie Sassara attempted the rock buttress a few times...

There's bigger faces near by but that might be the biggest rock face?

Climb2ski - my memory could be failing me but I'm pretty sure about the size. I don't have a map with me so I have no way of checking.

What routes are on it?

the route someone dies on. If you wanna get your death on, do it on Devils Thumb, which is far more aesthetic and historically significant

Mt55401- I guessing you have personally seen both Celeno and the Devils Thumb? I have and Celeno looks way more bitchin. The face is bigger, steeper, and the summit is nearly a mile higher...

Would you "Wrather." This is the side that points away from town.
