Description 

The premier backcountry big wall in the Wind Rivers, if not the lower 48. The rock is highly featured, hard, and generally clean. Currently home to mostly aid routes, but free routes are starting to be established on the larger section of the wall. I think it's fair to say that there is more potential for high quality difficult free routes on Hooker than any other wall I've seen in the States.

Kelsey's guide gives a good general layout of existing climbs, approach, etc. Although be aware that many of the route lines in Kelsey's guide are not entirely correct.

Getting There 

Approach via Dickinson Park, or Big Sandy via Hailey Pass.

This is an Incredible and sustained free climb. Very technical climbing, from patina crimping, to tech-9 seam navigation. Nik, Dave and I spent two summers out at Mount Hooker working on this route, employing a variety of techniques to find the free line- aid climbing endless beak seams, equipping free variations ground-up off hooks and stances, and hours spent working sequences on mini-traxion. The first 5 pitches actually follow an original attempt of the wall, joining Sendero Luminoso at the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
