Description

The premier backcountry big wall in the Wind Rivers, if not the lower 48. The rock is highly featured, hard, and generally clean. Currently home to mostly aid routes, but free routes are starting to be established on the larger section of the wall. I think it's fair to say that there is more potential for high quality difficult free routes on Hooker than any other wall I've seen in the States.

Kelsey's guide gives a good general layout of existing climbs, approach, etc. Although be aware that many of the route lines in Kelsey's guide are not entirely correct.

Getting There

Approach via Dickinson Park, or Big Sandy via Hailey Pass.
