This peak is Mount Wilson's little brother. Although there is extensive exposed rock, comparatively little activity has been recorded. The main cliff forms a high wall wrapping from the east to the northern side of the peak. The Blood Wall is a long reddish wall beneath the western ridge, high above Oak Creek Canyon. The lower cliff tiers on the east and north sides contain cragging routes on smaller outcrops. The Triad and Afterburner walls, as well as the League of Notions, are in this area.
Approach using either the old Oak Creek road, or the new trail. There is some benefit to using the standard Oak Creek Trail, because this is the normal route of descent.

This is an excellent pitch on great rock. It goes right up the center of the wall.The guidebook says "pure finger crack" but, like many Red Rocks climbs, it's pretty varied. Lots of cool moves, with two distinct crux sections.It's a fairly long pitch but it doesn't go to the top of the cliff; rap from a small tree and fixed wire. We used two 60m ropes. I'm not sure whether one 70m might work....[more] Browse More Classics in NV
