Necromancer Wall is a darkly varnished wall located on the south side of entrance to Icebox Canyon. There are a few nice routes found here including the spectacular Sensuous Mortician. Most routes are single long (120-140 feet) pitches that require two ropes to get off. Nice place to go for a little early morning shade and a few quick pitches.
Hike into Icebox Canyon on the standard trail. When you're generally straight across from the wall (easily spotted), look for a trail (seems to be several of these) headed across the wash to the wall. The approach is pretty short and mostly good hiking trail with the short stretch to cross the wash and climb the hillside up to the base of the wall. If you find the proper trail, it's pretty trivial.

Sensuous Mortician 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a NV : Red Rock : ... : Necromancer Wall
This is route "C" in the photo.Swain book says this is "one of the best moderate routes at Red Rocks". I would change that to "best moderate single-pitch routes", but it's still a very nice route. Very nice climbing. Starts in a fracture about 25 feet left of Fold Out. The fracture peters out about halfway up, follow it up and right onto a black streak where face climbing (small nuts in seams and slots) leads to the roof above - sort of wander for the easiest path. Juggy moves through the roof t...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
