Description

The Ebola Monkey Wall encompasses the tall sections of the Eastern face of Wolf Rock.

This area, secluded from most hiking traffic, features the highest walls on Wolf Rock - up to 50' in some places - with hand cracks and offwidths, overhangs and roofs, and slab on the same quartz-streaked rock. A very large boulder sits about 30 feet from the wall at the center of the area.

The area name is a tribute to nearby Fort Detrick, the center of the US biological weapons program from 1943 to 1969 (since the discontinuation of that program, it has hosted most elements of the United States biological defense program).

Getting There

Scramble around the North end of Wolf rock through the Wolf's Head Pillar Boulders - there is a modest access trail that goes wide around the end, but it is also fun to scramble down the bouldery scree, perhaps sampling the handsome problems to be found.

You can also scramble down from the top of Wolf Rock via the Monkey Wall Access (5.0): just look for a blocky descent with a large tree growing out of a fissure to your right (when looking down from the top).
