Description 

Looking for afternoon sunshine? This little gem sports only a few routes in the 5.10 to 5.11 range. It is generally protected from the wind, yet in the sun making it popular in the winter months. This is a good stopping point on the way to the Stratocaster or Running Man walls. Be sure to check out "Quicksand" (5.11d) for a fun climb with some variation.


Getting There 

After leaving the parking lot via the trail to the south, you will hike over the first ridge. Look north (left) and you will see the well-protected alcove up an embankment. Head down into the wash immediately after your feet leave the white sandstone, before you reach the trail leading to the Pier, and well-before reaching the "mushroom" boulder. Climb-up the waterstreaked slope until you reach the routes. I like this crag, as it is only a five minute walk until you reach the climbs.

Quicksand 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  NV : Red Rock : ... : California Crag
This route starts out with some 10+/11- climbing up to a huge ledge. The crux involves the process of moving out onto the roof holds and then pulling over the roof. I suggest a heel-hook, as it is very well-protected... so GO FOR IT! The top is more 10+/11- climbing, and really more a matter of fighting off a pump....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
