The Brass Wall is a shorter wall with a few longer climbs. It is clearly not the Red Rocks classic canyon wall with its long multi-pitch routes and certainly not the classic Red Rocks sport crag with the wild red overhangs. In fact, it's not the classic Red Rocks anything, but it is a nice crag with nice climbs and worth a visit for sure.
Park as for Pine Creek Canyon and approach initially as for the Mescalito's 'dark side.' After spotting the Beer And Ice Gully, the huge gully above a dirty and broken red cliff band, head on a maze of ambiguous trails to reach the edge of the soft red cliff band. This dirt-piled mess can be soloed over, but that is dicey.

I had a blast on this route.Be warned in advance, due to lack of friction and features, the grade of this climb is quite height dependent. A 5'10" climber with ape-like arms (me) or a 6'0" man will find the grade about right. It will be a little ea...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
