DescriptionThe first documented route up Wheeler. Consists of dirty rock and some scrambling through the trees. A fun climb if you want to experience what it was like climbing here back in the day. You will want to bring your hiking shoes up with you on this one, because the easiest way to get down is to hike back down the trail.
Pitch 1- Start up the slab trending towards the left facing corner. Continue up the bottom of a left facing corner below a massive overhanging block. Build a gear anchor.
Pitch 2- Climb the left facing corner up ledges to the top and belay from a tree.
Pitch 3- Move 15 feet right and make a scramble through trees to the bottom of a large open book corner. Build a gear anchor.
Pitch 4-Climb the open book corner to ledges with a not so obvious top out on the top of the cliff
Continue to move up until you reach the hiking trail which you can then follow to get back down the cliff.
