Description 

This corridor is in the shade most of the day, until the late afternoon. For being as close to the parking lot as it is, this crag is never crowded. This is likely due to the lack of moderates to be found here. Never-the-less, if it is hot outside, and you are looking for shade, and some difficult routes... this might just be your destination.


Getting There 

This is the obvious north-south running corridor located about 75 yards due east from the Sandstone Quarry parking lot.

Sound of Power

Sound of Power 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  NV : Red Rock : ... : Front Corridor
The thin flakes seem to keep breaking, which lead to the rating change from 5.12a to 5.12b. After the publishing of Roxanna Brock's new guide another flake broke on a gaston move, resulting in locals raising the grade another letter to 5.12c.Easy climbing to the first bolt turns difficult quickly as you encounter a thin crimp. Some technical footwork leads you higher (3rd bolt) where you enter the second crux sequence, including a gaston to a small broken flake. IF you can pull through this move...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

According to my guidebook there are 5 routes on the left side but there now appears to be 7?

The last 4 seem pretty obvious, Churning, SoP, Sunsplash, and M. Skank.

I did the farthest left...cool slopey jugs to some crimps to a ledge and then pull a little roof to the chains. I think that's Pockets of Dirt.? (seemed easy for 11d?) Any idea what the other 2 are? In between Pockets and Churning?
