Hopefully this is just a temporary bump in the road and we can quickly establish a positive relationship with the new landownder and work on an effective plan for climber access.
With the logging operations completed, Wheeler Mountain is again open to the public and to climbers. Please adhere to any new signage posted and note that the trail to the top of the mountain will likely remain closed until September for rerouting purposes.
Ground-up FA's are the way of the world here, as is ground-up bolting.
Travis Peckham's guidebook Tough Schist has almost 100 routes in the Wheeler Mountain section, buy the book.
The second parking area has the climber's trail heading north to the base of the cliff. Pass a house-sized boulder and stay right to run along most of the climbs via the base of the cliffs. Take a left at the house-sized boulder to get to the Moosehead Crack/Woolite area.
Approach time is ~10 minutes to the first routes, almost an hour to get all the way around the NE side of the mountain. Many, many climbs along the way.
