Description 

The lower eastern shoulder of Whiskey Peak is composed of the Lazy Buttress and several small faces that are to the left of the big white rockfall scar. There are many good moderate trad climbs in this area.

Several routes here end on or near the large platform called Lovers' Ledge. The easiest descent route crosses to the far side of the brushy gully behind the ledge, then goes up for 50 yards to the standard Whiskey Peak descent gully. This can be followed down and east, eventually wrapping around the base of the wall to the approach trail.


Getting There 

Walk west on the trail from the parking area. At the mouth of the canyon, the trail splits; take the uphill (left) branch directly up to the base of the wall. The trail reaches the rock immediately under Schaeffer's Delight.

Just to the right of the S-shaped crack of Lazy Buttress, there is a ramp leading up and to the right. Pitch 1: Easy climbing leads up the ramp, past an unnecessary belay station to a left-facing dihedral. Climb the dihedral, passing another unnecessary bolt, and belay at its top.Pitch 2: Climb up about fifteen feet to a slightly bulging headwall. A 5.7 move over the overhang leads to beautiful and easy face climbing. The knobby face leads upward to two overhangs. The easiest route passes ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
