Where we cut up right to the ridge crest (after having hiked too far down the trail).
Alternatively, and perhaps shorter with less elevation gain on the return hike, park at the Ellis Trailhead and hike the service road to the upper tram terminal. From the tram terminal, hike the crest trail Look for where the trail makes a close approach to the top of the ridge about 50 feet distant uphill on your right. If you reach a switchback that cuts back left from the ridge, you've gone a few minutes too far.
From here there is one approach choice for Jawbone and at least two for Pino Wall.
For Jawbone, take a well defined boot trail that leads up through a little grassy area and to a small saddle in the crest ridge. At the ridge, Jawbone is visible to the west. Drop down to an aspen stand on a broader saddle between Jawbone and the crest ridge. Pino Wall lies to the south but is not visible.
For Pino Wall, one has a choice of a longer approach on foot or a shorter approach on foot followed by a rap. If doing the former, first proceed as for Jawbone above. In any case, Pino Wall page has the remaining details.
