Description 

AKA: The Hong Wall, This wall is home to a collection of great routes. All follow crack systems which lean right and all kick back to various degrees (i.e, hard). The rock is nice and abrasive with a little flakiness on the sides.

The wall gets morning sun and then shade later in the day.

Tick Fever is the most popular route, but Wing Nut and Strewn Masters of Gore (look like they) are worth doing.

Getting There 

This wall is located between the Crescent/Coffin Buttress and the Egg Buttress. It is on the lower back side of The Keel. It can be approached from either The Egg or The Coffin side. About 2/3rds way up to the base of The Coffin cut east and around the base into a loose wash. Scramble up to base of climbs, or even better cut to The Hong Wall from The Egg trail split left just before you begin scrambling up to The Egg.

Featured Route For Wheeler-Newsome Wall
Hong Wall

Tick Fever 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Wheeler-Newsome Wall
It is located on the left side of the wall and diangonals right. Start on a platform above the loose wash. Begin with pumpy tight hands switching to something like chimneying up through splitting cracks then swinging out on to the slabby finish. Gears up nicely. Super Fun!...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
