Nice mountain and good route pictures.
Thanks for the vote.
Nice one, you are the king up the Ten Mile range. I have to admit I was surprised to see Wheeler look so rugged. I like that TOPO.
Thanks for the vote. I was surprised how rough this one was as well. I wonder if there are any other viable routes out there.
very nice page, refreshing after a couple of bad additions today, cheers!...really cool pics, going there now...
Nice photos of the route. I didn't know the TM range had scrambles like this!
Thanks for the vote. The Tenmile has some great stuff if you go off the beaten path. Check out Quandary's West Ridge. Very similar to this one.
Thanks for the vote
"seldom-climbed, reclusive" ... I love peaks like that! Thanks for posting. Nice work, great photos. I'll go add it to the What's New section now.
Edit: I see you beat me to What's New! By the way, do you know who the peak was named for? There are several "Wheeler" features around, I think.
Thanks for the vote, Nelson. I was also curious about who "Wheeler" was. The NM high point is also a "Wheeler" and there are several things on summitpost with similar names. I googled it, but found nothing. Beats me.
I wanted to climb this one for a while, and finally got around to it. Now, I don't know why I saved it for so long. It's an amazing area.
Another nice submission! How does Wheeler's south ridge compare with the Father Dyer/Helen ridge?
Thanks for the vote, Ryan. I'll add the ranking number to the intro.
This ridge is much tougher than the Helen-Dyer ridge. The rock is much looser, the route finding is tougher, and the difficult portions are a lot longer.
Good information, nice page. Reminds me of the fictional Wheeler family from TNT's miniseries "Into The West".
Thanks for the vote. Myself and Nelson Chenkin have been trying to figure out who it is named for. There are two possibilities that we found. Oh, well. I guess Wheeler was a common name.
Excellent page! You're doing great work for this range! Take care!
