About Jericho Wall:

The Falcon Guide does not list routes for this section becuse a good portion is apparently on private property and technically "Off Limits" to climbers. The old guide (and I think out of print) Superior Climbs is the only place the actual routes are listed. The following is the approach description given in the Falcon Guide... A big hulking diorite wall, it is large, complex and loose. It is guarded at the base by a swamp and steep talus... A number of routes have been done here (see Superior Climbs). You are on your own. The far right end ("Gunnin' For Glory Buttress) may be on the White Tail Ridge property and would therefore be off-limits to climbing... The trail to the top of Jericho Wall leaves the cedar grove of Mystical Mountain South and may be indistinct. Leave the cedar grove at a bearing of 260 degrees, following a shallow scoop or depression. The trail is indistinct here. After 56 feet the trail bends left (230 degrees) for 44 feet and skirts some boulders to the left. Curve right for 40 feet to the base of a small outcrop. Climb easily to the top and hike about 125 feet due southwest through a flat rather open area. A lookout to your right should reveal a buttress that is part of Jericho Wall. Other lookouts are present on this ridge but are not obvious from the trail. To reach the base of the wall, continue down the valley from the white boulder mentioned in the Mystical Mountain approach. (Taken from the Falcon Guide)
