Description 

This fine wall hosts several fine sport climbs in the 5.9 to 5.12- range. The rock is slightly less than vertical, and the climbing involves technical movement on pockets and crimpers, with an emphasis on good footwork. Since the wall faces kind of south-east, it gets morning sun.

Bolted routes, from left to right (or uphill to downhill):

[Upper Wall]
(01) Unknown, 5.10+
(02) Saxifrage, 5.9

(03) Unknown, ???

[Lower Wall]
(04) Sky Pilot, 5.11c
(05) Harebell, 5.11b
(06) Nature Hike, 5.11a
(07) Ravin' Roof Bypass, 5.12a

There are also a few lines that head through the roof itself, but I don't know much about them.

Getting There 

These routes are on the left side of Corbet's Couloir as you head down it (skier's left).

Top of the route.  There is a two bolt anchor over the edge which can be used if you sport climb the route but we wanted to top rope it and belay above so built an anchor back from the wall.  Made rappel and belay much easier.  Just pad the edge.

(02) Saxifrage 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  WY : Jackson Hole : ... : North Side
The classic moderate on the North Side. The first bolt is fairly high up there, and reaching it may be a bit unnerving for a shaky 5.9 leader. After clipping it, enjoy six more bolts of sustained edging and pocket pulling, with no obvious crux....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
