midway 1st pitch

This generally shady area has two EXCELLENT sport routes and two (o.k.) Trad routes. Worth a visit to climb them all in a day!! The route lenghts in the Brock/McMillan book for the two trad routes are VERY incorrect and will require walk offs that are pretty easy.
The approach is super easy and should take about 10-15 minutes. Follow the trail from the west side of the Red Springs Picnic Parking Area in Calico Basin; follow the trail up toward the obvious unbroken cliff straight west. Pick up a trail and head for the large shady area just to the right of the Classic Corner of Calico Area. Super easy to find, just start hiking up the trail up the hill and the wall will appear on your left hand side.

This route follows different crack systems to the top of the cliff. Ascend the right facing flake to the top of the pillar; then follow the obvious varnished corner (crux??) to its top; and then follow the left angling wide flare to the top (some thin gear). Crux would be the obvious varnished corner; but it looks more intimidating then it is; the jams are SUPER secure. The crux is great (2 Stars) while the rest would only be 1 star....[more] Browse More Classics in NV

Just to be clear, in case you don't know what the "Classic Corner" is -- the wall is directly west of the parking lot. Don't head North or South.
