Calico Basin has a wide variety of short routes. There is a mixture of trad and sport climbs. Calico Basin is a residential area, so climbers should be careful to avoid disturbing the people who live there. At the time of this writing (2005) there is a good deal of construction going on here, so be prepared to be adaptable as regards parking areas and approach walks.
Drive west on Charleston. About 2 miles before you get to the main scenic loop road, there is a turnoff to the right for Calico Basin. It is clearly marked.

This is an EXCELLENT sport route on the left side of the Coco Crag about 3 feet right of the obvious chimney. Varied movements; great protection; and climbing that is much steeper than it appears from the ground; as good as any sport route in Red Rocks at the grade IMHO. Brock guidebook says 10b but it might be 10a'ish??...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
