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.

Climb straight up this dihedral and then escape right around the overhang. The closest escape on the right goes at 5.7, go further right for the 5.5 route. You can take on the 5.9 variation by going left at the roof and doing a sweet, pumpy lieback up the overhanging crack. This climb is well protected and...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
