Location: NV : Red Rock : Pine Creek Canyon : Crabby Appleton Area : Crabby Appleton (5.9 PG13)

Comments: I thought that this route was really well protected whenever it got a little sketchy. There were a few areas where it was runned out, but that was typically when it got easier. Its something you get use to climbing at RR. It had a lot of fun moves but nothing too difficult. The crux on the 5.9 pitch was not very difficult bc the holds were large at the roof and also going over it. You just had to look for them.

We also did the 5.9 variation on pitch 4. This was also very easy. It looks sc... more >>

Comments: There is a variation for the third pitch. I had to climb it to get my rope free when I tried to repel off of it after I did frigid air buttress.

The variation is to climb the dihedral just above the repel anchors in the far left corner (left assuming that you are facing Las Vegas with your back to the wall). Its on the same ledge as the offwidth. I'd rate it about 5.8, little run out in some places. Good protections. Actually a fun climb. There is an offwidth and a chimney in it. Just ... more >>

Comments: This is really a fun lead. The holds were worn smooth, but still positive. By far the best climb on this wall.

Comments: You can do the last section going left or to the right. Right being straight up. The left was really too easy, but if you go straight up which is to the right of the last clip, the climb was a lot more fun and a tad harder. I tried both ways and I really enjoyed going rt more than going left. FYI, most of the chalk is to the left of the last clip.

Comments: I always thought that this was a very good/classic 5.8 climb because the second pitch had a nice little slab section and a very fun lay-back. But what made it a classic 5.8 is the first pitch. Instead of moving out on the face like you normally would, try staying in the dihedral all the way up until you are even with the bolts at the top of the pitch. This was so much more fun than the second pitch. Both pitches makes this a really fun climb. A great trad climb.

Comments: You can repel off this route with one rope. But it must be a 70 meter rope and you must not skip the rap station with the single bolt. Also be very careful on rope management because there are a lot of places where the rope can get caught on flakes, small trees, and bushes.


Rap off of the large pine tree at the top of burlesque, its pretty well described by the guidebooks, to a large ledge about 50 feet below this pine tree. You can actually see this rap station from the pine tree. Its uni... more >>

Comments: The walk-off is a bear. Also a lot of loose rocks on the climb. U Need to be really careful with this route and test any facehold you plan on using. I had a foothold break off.

The crack is fun. The rock sucks :)

Comments: BTW, we repelled with a single 70 meter rope - we had about 15 feet of extra slack. a 60 should get you down, but you will need to downclimb a little. Just make sure you don't repel off the end of your 60m. The repel will put you near the base of the tall pine tree that is higher up and at the base of the climb.

Comments: bring some extra webbing to back up the repel tree. The stuff up there is getting a little old as of April 15, 2009.

Comments: If you like this type of climbing, try kemosabe on the ragged edge wall in willow springs. Its a notch harder, but a great slab climb :)
