Description

The Seldom Seen Wall, as the name suggests, doesn't see a lot of visitors but not for any particularly good reason. The wall is located just up the hill from the super classic (and crowded) south face of The Petit Grepon, and just down and right from the (somewhat) often visited east face of Taylor Peak. The wall is about 1000 feet tall, and the rock quality is reasonable to good.

The wall can be logically divided into three buttresses, a West, Central and East Buttress. Little is known about the climbing history of the wall. It is not mentioned in Bernard Gillett's or Richard Rossiter's guidebooks, but there are at least two old and tattered rappel slings, one on the lower part of the east buttress, and one on the upper part of the central buttress, so at least some climbing has taken place there.

Getting There

Hike to Sky Pond, then towards the base of the Petit Grepon. Continue past the Petit into a hanging valley below the east face of Taylor Peak. Before reaching Taylor Peak, the wall is quite obvious on the right.
