5 out of 5 stars Great Fun

Wolfs head lived up to it's reputation in my book. The best part is hand traversing around all the towers at the end of the climb. Great summit. The approach and descent are interesting.

5 out of 5 stars Sweet climb

We soloed up to the col and then simu-climbed most of the ridge (except where rope drag was an issue). We back at camp at about 11 a.m. My buddy climbed Skunk Mountain later on in the day - I hung out at camp.

5 out of 5 stars Not your average 5.6...

Which made it that much more amazing. Most beautiful, weird, exposed 5.6 on the planet. Took us 15 hours camp to camp b/c we had a slow party in front of us and we weren't yet acclimatized. Much of this route is traversing, so don't take a second who can't lead 5.7 or higher.
