Comments: We brought a short stick clip to aid through pitch 3.

We rapped the route with an 80 meter rope.

Rapping pitch 3 took some shenanigans. You'll figure it out.

90 degrees in Vegas = bit chilly to perfect climbing temps.

Great route.

Comments: With a 70 meter rope, we rapped straight down the face. Ended up in the chimney left of the start. Easy downclimb to the base. Watch your ends.

Comments: I started on a ledge to the left of the arete. After the easy crack run out the face up and right to a hidden corner. Then easy ground to a large ledge system. NO fixed anchor for pitch 1.

I rapped with a single 80 meter. 60 Won't make it. Not sure a 70 would get your down. At the bottom of the last rappel, stay close to the cliff. Easy 4th/5th class around arete puts you back at your packs.

Shade till noon. Sunny thereafter. Plan appropriately.

Not as popular as its neighbors to the left and right (Challenger/Adventure Punks) but just as fun.

Three easy raps with a 70 meter to get down.

Consider doubles down to 000 C3 (if you're weak-kneed like me). You can aid the crux with one 000 C3 so 5.10 climbers have no excuse to not get on this.

Thoughts on P2. Well below the big roof is a small step. I recommend placing your last ... more >>
