Wild Ridge proper is the long, stepped, ridgline that crosses the Wild Tower and continues beyond. A fun and moderate alpine outing with fantastic views and great belays. See Beta photo
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.
