Description 

Excellent rock, good quality traditional routes, and a bit of shade characterize this north-facing wall. Most of the climbs are four pitches long and end on a broken ledge system part way up the main face. The standard descent is via the gully on the left (east) side of the face. Some scrambling and 2 or 3 short rappels get you down to the easy terrain. As you approach the bottom stay tight to the left and hug the base of the cliff. Climb down through a small notch to arrive exactly at your pack.

Getting There 

Park at the First Creek trailhead on Route 159. Follow a wide trail west. As the trail nears the mouth of the canyon, it drops into the wash for a while. It then continues on the bench on the south side of the stream until it climbs the short steep hill to the base of the wall

This is a surprisingly good route that goes up a subtle line on the buttress to the left of Kick in the Balls. Because it starts at the base of the buttress, it is longer: about six pitches. The key feature is an aesthetic, left-facing, curvy corner with an alarmingly perched block halfway up.Start at an easy slab directly below this corner, and climb to a good ledge with a large bush on it. You could probably bypass this pitch with scrambling around to the left, but the climbing here provides a ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

Decent from the wall has three raps. Careful not to miss the 3rd rap station it will be on the left. The second is a short one.

3 raps with a single 60 will get you down safely. Make sure you've got your ends even, the first rap is about 95 feet.

Second rap heads towards the healthy tree out at the edge of a ledge and is on the rappeller's/climber's right. Keep right of the brush aiming for the tree and bolts marking the final rap will be obvious when even with the tree.
