Description 

The Hidden Wall sits at the top of the south fork of Ice Box canyon. The wall is Guarded by one of the biggest approachs in all of Red Rock. The approach from the Icebox trail head is reported to involve multiple 5th class sections and serious route finding. Facing north east the wall see's very little sun. There is currently only one reported route.
The descent is to descend Ice box, however hiking to the Rocky Gap road may be more desirable.


Getting There 

Approach by climbing the south fork of Ice Box canyon. The approach will take several hours.

And "Blitzkreig" goes up the center of that? From the grandstand up through the central water stains? Looks like a five-star adventure .... To do that route in a day would require a true Red Rock master!

Maybe some of the LV Mountaineers routes around Bridge would provide a better descent than Icebox?
