Greetings,

Looking for some beta (especially pictures with routes) of the climbs behind campsite 1 at Sheeps Pass campground in jtree. I found one on the Internet of Hobnob wall and part of Television Wall https://picasaweb.google.com/114483098472921831742/JoshuaTre>>>. Does anyone know of any publications or Internet sources with visuals of these walls? The area is described in the Vogel guide, but no pics of these walls. Any other info about the climbs on these walls would be appreciated as well.

Thanks!

Here's what I know. Bartlett guide gives the TV wall and hob nob wall zero stars.......I climbed most of the routes on these walls about 20 years ago....don't remember much. I know we put bolts on the Prime time arete in dec. of 1994, so it was a lead instead of a lame-o top rope. Vogel gives Mr. Rogers (5.5) one star (we free soloed the route), and he gives Nightline (5.10c ) two stars!......The Vogel book rates Geraldo follows Ophry as 5.0...but that is a type-o error;....it's supposed to read 5.10 (Bartlett calls it 5.10a PG/R). On Hob NOb wall, Vogel gives Marking time (5.8) two stars......hmmmm....anyways;..hope that helped alittle bit. Just go do the climbs;...bang them out and see what you think....the FA parties are varied;....Jeff and kelly Rhodes (they are Outward bouders who went up on everest...real climbers for sure)...Todd Swain;..the real deal too....the late Alan Nelson (he's led Bachar/Yerian)....Roger Linfield....Ca. climber turned Colorado climber...Mr. OWth....knows J.tree well.....they seemed to like climbing at sheep's pass........I say give it a go!

Thanks Todd,

That's just the kind of info I was looking for. We'll check that out and the Wailing Sax Wall.
