Description 

A 500' wall with an easy approach that features mostly moderate multi-pitch routes. The wall faces northeast and goes into the shade before noon.


Getting There 

Park at White Rock Spring, a trailhead on the loop road a couple of miles past the Sandstone Quarry accessed by a short dirt road on the right.

Follow a good trail towards the wall. A climbers trail cuts right near where the stream below the wall intersects with the one coming down from the spring. The approach is an easy 30 minutes.

Descend all routes by scrambling southwest over the rib of rock behind the top of Tunnel Vision and then down and left (southeast) in the gully behind the wall. A short rap or easy downclimb is needed at the start. The trail turns left out of the gully at the base of the wall.

This is a beautiful splitter crack angling right and passing through a small bulge near the top on a clean dark red wall. The tech crux may be the first ten feet starting in a bulging straight up crack that begins fist and wider for a few feet with sandy face holds on either side. At the obvious bulge about 3/4 height, the crack thins from hands down to rings and stacks for a move or two and then fingerlocks just above. At that point you can stem to the wall behind you and use it as the crack pi...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

There's a trail which comes out of the descent gully and skirts basically the base of the crag - so it's doable to leave packs etc. at a convenient spot before the start of the climb.

To descend, yes, there is a rappel/ downclimb if you enter into the gully up high. However, for Tunnel Vision you can easily avoid this and also have a quicker/easier descent. At the top of the final listed pitch in the Handren Guidebook you end up on top of a pedestal with another pitch of vertical climbing above you. You can do this next 5th class pitch and end up getting over to the descent gully up high. However to get into the descent gully much lower down, don't go any higher than the top of the pedestal, but instead go across to the other side from where you came up and descend into a chimney/gully system starting 20' back. Follow this system for a couple of minutes and several hundred feet, then take a sharp right and make a narrow traverse (following cairns) on dark rock towards the right. This will spit you out much lower than the rappel in the gully. Follow cairns and the beaten trail down from here.
