Wildcat is one of the un-assuming peaks of the Central organs. It is distinguished from its neighbors by being less remarkable: Its neighbor to the south, Dingleberry ahs a higher summit. Its neighbor to the north, Razorback, boasts an awesome exposed summit ridge. Not surprisingly, wildcat does not get much attention. Indeed, the Central Organs, ie peaks between Big Windy Canyon and the Wedge, have a reputation for not being being climbed much and for having the lengthiest, and nastiest approaches.
Can be approached from either the East or West sides of the Organs. Standard 3rd and 4rth class routes approach from Modoc Mine Rd. At a point on the road before the switchbacks, there are a couple huge boulders. From these boulders take the small spur of mountain, "Wohlt's Welt", that leads NE toward the gully between Wildcat and Dingleberry. At the top of Wohlt's Welt one can traverse North into the Gully between Wildcat and Dingleberry. Ascend this gully to reach Wildcat.

In fact, it appears a recent rock-fall event has scoured most of the lower gully clean. The lower gully ascends past the Guardian Buttress on the left, and an un-named sentinal on the right, and ends at a narrow spot where it joins a larger gu...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
