Description

This is the longest piece of rock on the west side of The Pass. It is a ridge line above Wild Rock, which faces mostly East and South. It is high, and there is normally a light wind and great temps. This is a new area as of June 2015 and has not seen much action. There is plenty of rock and opportunities for new routes, mostly longer moderates, although the East face of "Wild Tower" may have some steeper lines.

The rock is the same as the rest of The Pass. It is mostly face climbing with some cracks. The lower angled sections have some lichen, and there is some loose rock here and there and on the decent gully. Otherwise, it is solid.

Getting There

Park as for "Wild Rock" in the large pullout on the south side of CO Hwy 82, 10.8 miles east of City Market in Aspen. Cross the street and head North/uphill, and make your way through some boggy patches until you see Wild Rock. Continue to the North face of Wild Rock. Then hike about 200 feet uphill, and look for some carins and a large, downed tree. Follow the carins on a rising traverse west toward the cliff, passing under a large boulder then straight up a large talus field until you hit the base of the wall. This takes about 30 minutes.
