BETA PHOTO: Case Face

, walk north along the base of the cliff and follow the best trail you can find that continues uphill and right. Soon you will arrive at a nice, large ledge at the base of the Case Face.

Belay at the top of the crack wherever possible. This is a fun, easy trad lead.Descent:A slightly nerve-wracking downclimb is possible. From the belay, traverse left across a slab (scary) to a corner, then downclimb a slab towards the base of the climb. It also appears that some people rap from a smal...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
