Description 

This crag is pretty easy to pick out, it's the best looking cliff on the hillside. It's basically right across from the top of the Friar. It has a broad stripe of varnish going across the middle, with lighter colored rock at the top and bottom. Gets plenty of shade.

Getting There 

The approach is a sort of annoying bushwhack but at least there's a big shady ledge waiting for you at the base of the cliff. Probably 1 1.5 hours to get up there. Rap slings on a tree save you having to downclimb the last section of the approach.

Eliminator Crack 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  NV : Red Rock : ... : Afterburner Cliff
This is an excellent pitch on great rock. It goes right up the center of the wall.The guidebook says "pure finger crack" but, like many Red Rocks climbs, it's pretty varied. Lots of cool moves, with two distinct crux sections.It's a fairly long pitch but it doesn't go to the top of the cliff; rap from a small tree and fixed wire. We used two 60m ropes. I'm not sure whether one 70m might work....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
