This is a phenomenal line that wanders up a low angle wall. This canyon offers fantastic views. The line itself is very fun and climbs on different kinds of granite on every pitch.

The bolts are a bit spaced, but this is not a problem if you are a comfortable 5.9 climber. If you get lost, keep looking, in most cases you should be able to spot the next bolt from any given one. When the route is not clear, the climbing is easy, so just follow the 'easy-way' up and you surely will find the next bolt or belay station. All anchors are bolted.

The first pitch is kind of the hardest one for your head, and maybe the most sustained one. The rest will feel more smooth and consistently easy face climbing, though a bit flaky in places and a few short crux moves here and there... nothing is harder than 5.8/5.9(-)

The last pitch finishes on the big ledge under the rock feature on the top. You can scramble around the west side of this feature to summit. Great views from there, is really worth it!


The route starts close bellow of some brown water streak marks on the middle-right side of the wall. There is an obvious roof at the base of the streaks. The first bolt of Wily is about 30 feet left of the roof. This bolt is about 30 feet up from the base but the climbing is easy (the actual roof is the first pitch of Table for Two).

From the top, there is a rap line (5 raps) down over Table for Two that is save and goes straight down. You will need two ropes to rap down.


The line is all bolted. A few nuts and plenty of slings for chicken heads come handy.
All the anchors are bolted.
on march 24 2017 Bob Crawford and Josh Thrash put quick links and 3/8 rappel rings on all belay stations of Wily Javelina and removed the old webbing wads. Bob Crawford, Valdez alpine club.

Also, most bolts are new.

This is an awsome route if you like slab. As for the "R" rating, It is well bolted through the harder moves and run out on the easy sections. For a really solid 5.9 leader, it will seem very safe, but for someone who is shaky on a 5.9, you may want to wait. The first bolt is probably 30-40' from the ground on relatively easy climbing. The last two pitches are only protected by one bolt and chicken heads, but there are bomber holds everywhere and the chicken heads are good. Dec 23, 2008

Fun route. I actually thought pitch 4 was the most fun and probably the crux. An airy couple moves over the bulge on good rock. Some substantial runouts on probably 5.8 terrain. The rock quality isn't as classic as Cochise, but it's a perfect outing if you're looking for something moderate but still exciting, long and adventurous. I placed 2 pieces all day- a big (yellow i think) BD C4 on pitch 3 (probably unnecessary) and a .3 camalot on the last pitch. Also slung 3 or 4 chicken heads on the last 2 pitches. Have fun!

FOR GETTING THERE- Start your clock for the 0.8 miles mentioned above at the sign in station. Note that you will pass several right turns before you hit the correct one. There was some faded pink flagging on a bush at the correct turn. Nov 20, 2009

The P4 bulge that Dustin mentions is awesome climbing but a fall from there might hurt (onto a ledge)--one of the few, if not the only places where the run-outs are not on easier terrain.

On the last two pitches, I found 3 bolts on P5, and then went straight up on P6 and was surprised to find 2 more bolts, each of which I almost climbed past (they really weren't necessary as there were heads all over the place). This finish was completely independent of Table for Two and these pitches were fun 5.6/5.7. Great route overall with a very different feel from Table for Two, which climbs more in corners and distinct features. Also much more sustained than Table for Two. Dec 15, 2009

As mentioned above, this is 6 pitches, not 5. The route is the first route to the left of the small roof. If you encounter quick links and/or bail biners early on, you are probably on Three Draws and a Little Lady. Jan 3, 2010

Wily Javelina is a fun route with a lot of bolts on it for the area. Small wires and cams can be placed here and there throughout the route if you feel you need them. Yes, the first pitch starts just left of the roof for Table for Two. The bolt you see 30 to 40 feet up is the start of the route. If you start on the other side of the tree to the far left of the roof for Table for Two and climb through a bolt or two and pass a button head (that you can cinch a small wire onto for protection) you are on the wrong route. Then the choice becomes do you keep on climbing for a pitch and a half or so until you see the bolts for Wily on your right and traverse over, or do you back off while your not to far up and move over to start Wily just to the left of the roof. The route finding the rest of the way is easy and the bolts present just when you start wondering where the next is. As you can tell, we got started on the wrong route.

Got to help Will & his wife set the first few pitches. Loads of fun.

We got the name from watching a Javelina rummage around the base as we drilled bolts by hand on lead.

At first were pretty nervous to head back to the ground to hike out.

Great camping way out there. Go climb this for me. I will not be back again anytime soon. May 5, 2016

Wiley's a good route! Goes pretty fast, too, if you're at all used to climbing traditional Mendoza fare. Try not to climb p.4 in the rain! Dec 31, 2016

as a strict ground up hand driller for 45 years, I would like to offer my praise to the crew that put up this fine line. Many of the drilling stances are bold and brutally painful. This proud commitment to ground up ethics and bold stance drilling is an inspiration to any climber who wants maximum adventure in creating new and proud routes. Bob Crawford VAC Mar 25, 2017

Good to get back on the Wiley one again (#16) yesterday. Good quality outing + great quality friend = fantastic overall day. Happy to see the new bolts here and there where needed (thanks, Jeff!). Only thing that concerns me: why are all the holds so much smaller than they were 25 years ago? Why is it so much steeper than it used to be??? Dec 30, 2017
