Climb the very nice, Indian creek style hand crack in the left facing corner. The crack starts perfect Gold camalots then pinchs down near the top. There is a nice ledge, and a great anchor, on top of the pitch.
After the initial approach up to the base of Desert Gold traverse around to the north(right) on a very loose and broken ledge system. After traversing around an amphitheater start looking at the wall above . . . the climb will be obvious.
A great splitter, but this climb is very short. Only worth checking out if you have some other climbs in mind.

Well, it certainly is short but I'd be hard pressed to say it's unmemorable. I respect your opinion though because I'm sure you've visited the Creek, Moab, Yosemite, etc. and you can understand what splitter heaven is really like. But, if you're a Vegas local looking to rev up for a visit at any one of those locations this is going to be your best bet at training for it and getting a taste as to what it will be like.

Worth the hike for the best splitter of its grade in Red Rock. Is there another route of this quality in the Park? Show me.
Andy, PM me and I can show you other routes of this quality, there are many! I was climbing several of the routes, which you don't know yet, with a friend yesterday. Would you like to climb? Get on some great cracks!?!
If you're looking to climb hard and explore to rhe utmost, or anything else... (:
I know the cracks and am wanting to be one with the cracks...haha
Anyway, pm me, message here, said me an email, or whatever the wind gods recommend. My best, Ryan 1-702-539-3106
