Description 

This is a very beautiful trad climbing area with a wide variety of colors in the rock and an array of features as well. Dihedrals, cracks, smooth faces are all prominent here. It seems to get little sun especially after noon. Be aware of the rock art, there are numerous petroglyphs and pictographs - don't climb on them. Several routes are now off limits due to the presence of rock art. Descend these single pitch routes by walking off right.


Getting There 

Park in Willow Springs where the road turns to dirt. Follow the trail marked Petroglyph Wall Trail across the drainage. The trail takes you directly to the crag in about five minutes.

Mitten's Revenge 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  NV : Red Rock : ... : Children's Crag
This route requires a bit of a lot of different technique. The bottom section is a fairly easy crack, but requires a bit of thinking for gear placement. The middle bulge (first crux) looks a bit intimidating, but the crimps are all there. After a little offwidth section, the top section (second crux) is pure face; very fun and protected by two bolts. This last section is almost like a reverse "Lotta Balls", instead of balls, there are small dimples that you don't think will quite hold ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
