RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


Start 10ft to the right of "Hugh's Banner" on the left hand wall at the entrance to the "Diet Delight" descent gully. Climb the vertical crack (just right of a broken chimney) via large wacky holes to an arete at 30ft. Continue up the bold gearless arete and finish on the bulging gearless rippled slab just to the right of "Hugh's Banner. Finish at the "Blockade Runner" rap slings. Descend as for "Blockade Runner".

How long is the approach to this place (if you drive a 2-wheel drive)?

From the nearest parking area next to route 160, it will take just over an hour to walk to Windy Peak. If you have a 4 x 4 it's possible to drive down some tracks to a closer parking area. It's a worthwhile walk-in though, as there's some quality climbing to be had - Jackass Flats, Diet Delight and Blockade Runner etc. Having climbed these classics, Penny Farthing and myself had the time to do the first ascents of "Hugh's Banner" and "Boobs, Bikes & Beer". A grand day out!

I believe you could get a 2 wheel drive in there right now. The BLM has opened an access off the 160 about 1 mile further towards Pahrump This is a more direct route. Requires driving up a sandy wash.
