The Kraft Boulders are located before the Red Rocks Visitors center. Great Boulders outside of a residential area. Hundreds of problems from V0 to V10. The very first boulder is called the Cube and it is hard to miss considering its size. The cube is about 25 ft. with a many routes including Agent orange (V8). There is a rap anchor on the north side of the boulder if you get sketched out down climbing the V3.
From Vegas, take highway 159 past the campground but not quite to the visitors center. Take the right turn to red springs. You will wind through a neighborhood but keep going straight on the main road. The road will have a pull off for a trailhead which is popular but go right and straight down that road. The road has a dead end with gray rock on both sides of the road, park here. Take the trail in front of you. From there the trail takes you to the boulders in about a minute or two depending on how fast you walk.
There are boulders in this area with archeological significance-- the Caliman boulder in particular. Please be mindful of rock art and be aware that it is illegal to climb within 50' of petroglyphs. Note also that the BLM is considering possible closures in this area, and being mindful of access issues can help keep the boulder open for climbing.

Start with opposing side-pulls and a wide stem, make a hard move to a left hand pinch and then the crux move to a right facing ear. Finish up and right to an obvious jug at the top of the neighboring V5, top out via easy, albeit very highball terrain. Although Slice N Dice is better known, it is a variation of 'Plunger' V9 which shares the...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
