Way at the top of Ptarmigan Creek sits Hurricane Wall. This wall hosts some of the steepest climbs on The Pass. Although it's a trek to get up here, the quality climbing and the great views up and down the valley are worth a day (or more?) away from the more popular crags.
Hike way up along and past Jungle Wall. After a small break in the cliff, the overhangs of Hurricane Wall come into sight.
