Wheeler-Newsome Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: East face of the Wheeler-Newsome Wall (aka Hong Wa...
AKA: The Hong Wall
, This wall is home to a collection of great routes. All follow crack systems which lean right and all kick back to various degrees (i.e, hard
). The rock is nice and abrasive with a little flakiness on the sides.
The wall gets morning sun and then shade later in the day. Tick Fever
is the most popular route, but Wing Nut
and Strewn Masters of Gore
(look like they) are worth doing.
This wall is located between the Crescent/Coffin Buttress
and the Egg Buttress
. It is on the lower back side of The Keel
. It can be approached from either The Egg
or The Coffin
side. About 2/3rds way up to the base of The Coffin
cut east and around the base into a loose wash. Scramble up to base of climbs, or even better cut to The Hong Wall
from The Egg
trail split left just before you begin scrambling up to The Egg
