Description 

Lots of short routes with short approaches; mostly sport climbing.

IMPORTANT: Waste bags are provided by the Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council in order to reduce human waste issues at the crags and boulders. Please feel free to take one, use as directed, and dispose of in any trash receptacle. Please do not leave them lying around, and do not throw them in the toilets at the parking areas. The project was funded primarily by the American Alpine Club's Cornerstone Conservation Grant, with additional funding from the Access Fund and Mountain Gear. Please do your part to be a good steward of this amazing climbing area.

Getting There 

Drive a little more than a mile up the scenic loop road and park at the (you guessed it) first pullout. A trail leads down and across the small canyon.

From the Grand Circle Trail on our way to the Panty Wall, we saw climbers on a wall between the Ultraman Wall and the Panty Wall. Looks like they set up a toprope on fixed anchor. Anyone has any info on this wall?

We spent a full day at the First Pullout. The Rock is amazing, and coming here for the first time, it was a great experience. Having climbed only a little over a year, this was a perfect destination. There are toprope options, nicely bolted sport routes that are easy and tough. We had an experience lead climber with us so that helped us set up some more exciting routes.
