Description 

The premier backcountry big wall in the Wind Rivers, if not the lower 48. The rock is highly featured, hard, and generally clean. Currently home to mostly aid routes, but free routes are starting to be established on the larger section of the wall. I think it's fair to say that there is more potential for high quality difficult free routes on Hooker than any other wall I've seen in the States.

Kelsey's guide gives a good general layout of existing climbs, approach, etc. Although be aware that many of the route lines in Kelsey's guide are not entirely correct.

Getting There 

Approach via Dickinson Park, or Big Sandy via Hailey Pass.

August of 2017 Maury Birdwell and I traveled to Mount Hooker to try and free climb the original 1964 Royal Robbins, Dick McCracken, and Charles Raymond North Face. Original Sin follows the 1964 route for 4.5 pitches where we found a "bolt/rivet" ladder hooking hard left around the prow to where the Robbins team traversed into the upper wide corners of what is now the Jaded Lady. We gave ourselves 11 days including travel, hiking, and rest to see if it would come together. We led eve...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
