Far Right (Warmup Area) Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Brent working a crux.
This section will include routes between The Bulge (5.9 trad) and Hoi Polloi, the rightmost sport route at the Shield.
Great warmups with a couple of more difficult routes thrown in. Some of the best moderate sport routes in Jackson (in my opinion). Don't expect to find solitude on this section of the cliff, though.
See main Hoback Shield approach directions. Hoi Polloi is the furthest right sport route.

Apparently this route has gotten easier with time, as a current guidebook lists it as 5.7. I'll stick with the original guidebook(s) grade of 5.9.Fun, easy face climbing leads to a large roof which is pulled on titanic jugs. Easier climbing leads to the top. Great moves over the roof! There is a variation that starts just left of this route and is exponentially harder. I've only done it once, and pulled on a draw to get over the roof. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WY

watch out for the gully to the right of Hoi Polloi. we were there on a windy day and small rocks and debris just rained down. only really small stuff, but still, it was coming down without much encouragement. despite that, a fun spot.
