Location: NV : Red Rock : Black Velvet Canyon : Black Velvet Wall : Texas Hold 'Em (5.11c)

Comments: This is an amazing route…one of the better lines in Red Rocks. Just a few more pieces of beta for those interested. A #4 Camelot is certainly not required, but it could be placed a number of places. It adds piece of mind particularly at the beginning of the 10+ pitch. We rappelled directly down Texas tower just climbers right of velvet tongue, not down the route and found it worked very well. Get on this thing and enjoy.

Comments: This is an outstanding line of crack climbing. Descend off the backside and then down a gully.

Comments: This is a more serious route than Fine Line, but it is safe. Good pro, but not anywhere you want it. Be prepared to climb above small, but good gear. Incredible from beginning to end.

Comments: Incredible. We were really happy to do this one before Myopia, as Myopia is in my opinion a bigger day physically and mentally. One of the great granite walls in the states!

Comments: The undercling starting the climbing after the rest was pulled off the route over the weekend, but it should not affect the climb too much or change the grade. Almost hit a little girl at the base...careful out there.

Comments: Great tower route. I would call pitch 2 and pitch 5 11- and the crux pitch 11+. On the crux pitch about half way up the pitch, you can protect with a #0.75 Camalot and a yellow Mastercam in horizontals. This allows you to save your #1 cams.

Comments: A 4.5 camalot helps protect the belay as you go into the bombay on P2

Comments: Amazing Route...Agree with the above comments. Having done this one and Monkey Finger I also agree that this route is the more difficult and strenous of the two. It certainly requires a wider range of skills. Be very careful on the raps...stuck ropes can be a big issue on this one.
