Description 

Alternative Crag is an excellent sport destination with several high quality routes ranging from .11b to .13a/b. This crag is shady, with the west side receiving some afternoon sun. There is a great, flat place at the base to hang out. It can be quite breezy here as well.

Getting There 

From the parking area for Kraft Mt. hike the dirt road heading west past an abandoned building project. Continue through a meadow until you reach some large boulders where you can look up and left (southwest) and see a natural bridge. Hike to the right side of the bridge and over it, continuing up the gully to the base of an obvious, huge boulder with a very steep north face.

The inverted shuffle.

Offwidth aka Desert-erada V2 5+  NV : Red Rock : ... : Alternative Crag
This unique crack offers something for the offwidth enthusiast or any individual looking for something different. Start at the very back of the crack, and bury your feet up high. Do a sit up and shuffle out the roof. Pull the lip with a fun pivot and the help from a few edges. Although not technically all that difficult, it is quite an enjoyable climb. Additional, there are probably numerous ways to climb this. This reminds me of a similar (but easier) sandstone version of Vedauwoo's [[Desi...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
