SteveZ on the super-classic Running Man
This very sunny cliff contains high quality one pitch climbs which are mostly bolted and relatively long -- generally two ropes are needed to rappel.
This wall is at most a ten minute walk east from the Sandstone Quarry parking area. Before going to this cliff for the first time, it is a good idea to identify it from the road, on the drive to the parking lot, using the photo in Swain.
Swain includes complicated direction for finding the cliff, which can be simplified to take a trail from the southeast corner of the parking lot and follow your nose.

Clip a few more bolts and head straight up through a varnished section of rock. Some of the varnish is questiona...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
