Description 

Some fun and adventures routes are found here. The long approach makes for a full day of climbing. The Warrior faces north so it is in the shade all day.


Getting There 

Follow the gully up to the tower. There is some technical climbing so be careful and wear approach shoes.

The Warrior 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  NV : Red Rock : ... : Cactus Flower Tower summit
The Warrior is a very adventurous and unknown classic. It involves every type of crack climbing there is. Giving too much info will ruin the adventure aspect of the route so I'll keep it brief. Follow the huge dihedral on the north side of Cactus flower tower for five pitches, the last two go straight up the face. Rap the route to descend (two ropes required).I hope you enjoy this seldom-climbed classic!PS. This is less like Red rocks 5.11 and more like yosemite 5.11...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
