Description

Wet Wall is one of the few moderate lines ascending the entire face at Ragged. It starts with a tricky corner (hard to protect) and then an easy section followed by the crux layback (well protected by cams) and then up a corner to the top.

Location

This route is about 25' right of Wiessner Slab. Look for a shallow right-facing corner that starts about 10' up off the ground.

Protection

Some small cams / wires for the first part

This is probably my favourite climb at ragged. Intimidating start leads to an excellent wandering route with decent protection and lots of mantling. Try Wetlock if you really want to get your heart pumping! Jan 30, 2008

Did the route as described here, but I think from the Falcon guidebook that the description given is for the Wet Wall - Knights Move linkup. Our book described the end to Wet Wall as finishing on the face right of the corner. Still a good climb with plenty of pro.

Placing gear at the start is not hard, but a fall there might still result in a sprained ankle. Sep 27, 2009

The first and last 15 feet are fun, but just a succession of mantels in between. Oct 20, 2011

No the Falcon guidebook (Dave Fasulo) has it right. The topo is accurate. It goes straight up the face just to the left of a stepped left facing corner and well to the right of the Knight's Move corner. Jun 6, 2012
