Description

The Aeolian Wall is the unmistakable and massive diamond-shaped feature that comprises the entire right side of Mt. Wilson. Bounded on the left side by the prominent Resolution Arete and on the right side by Wind God Tower, this awesome wall terminates at the summit proper. The Aeolian Wall is the site of the "Original Route" on Mt. Wilson, the Aeolian Wall V 5.9 A3. Done by Joe Herbst and Larry Hamilton in 1975. For those curious about the name, an Aeolian is a harp that produces musical sounds when the wind blows across the strings. A resonant experience for many Red Rocks aficionados to be sure.

Getting There

If you can't find the Aeolian Wall, perhaps you should consider climbing somewhere closer to the road.
