Are you sure this is not the Pisces wall? If so it has at least one ascent.

South fork of Icebox, across from Hidden? Looks similar to Buffalo? Pretty surely not Pices.

Not Pisces for sure....as Dougs photo clearly shows.

I went for a big hike around the top of Ice Box...out to the summit of Hidden wall. This wall is around the left(climbers) shoulder of The Buffalo wall.

I stand corrected. I have viewed this wall but only from the far right base. I remember it being fairly intimidating but yes, probably unclimbed.

I think this is a testament to the potential of RR that there are still large unclimbed walls all over the place. If people would think outside the pull-outs they might find a different world.

Agreed! There's a whole other world out there!

That is buffalo wall and there are two aid climbs both rated A3 Buffalo wall & Tatanka.

Funny that the hardman of the sport haven't tried to free these. Then again, it takes a hell of a lot of work to get back in to the base of these.

Love this area

Greg-

thats not the buffalo wall- josh has climbed the buffalo wall and would know that for sure.

speaking of Buffalo Wall free routes- the Buffalo Wall route has been freed at .13b/c (with variations on the lower pitches), and Buffalo Soldiers was freed at .12c. Also Tom recently put up Crystal Dawn at .13 something or other, and I forget if this was a variation on Tatanka or an entirely new route- I seem to think it was the latter.

This wall has no routes/ascents. It's somewhere between 800-1000ft high, and the rock looks to be good quality. The approach may well be one of the crux's.
