Fixx Cliff is a traditional crag that is characterized by tricky gear placements and the occasional bolt for protection. All of the anchors for the climbs on this crag are gear anchors and should remain that way to preserve and respect the style that these routes were put up with. The top of the cliff allows many opportunities for gear anchors and an easy scramble to the north will get you back to the base quickly. Fixx Cliff receives sun for the majority of the day as it faces to the south west. The majority of the routes on the cliff are are in the 5.11 range. Even though this is a traditional crag many face holds can be found while climbing on the routes. If you are not feeling up to leading 5.11 then an easy scramble from the north end of the crag will get you to the top so you can set up a top rope. The classic climb of the cliff is Saved by Zero and is a must if you climb at the Fixx Cliff.
Follow the same directions as for Dog Wall, but continue to the top of the gully. Once you are to the top of the gully where it opens up to a flat ledge the Fixx Cliff is directly to your right. The Tuna and Chips wall will be about 20 yards in front of you at the top of the gully. If you run into this wall you have gone to far.

Saved by Zero 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c NV : Red Rock : ... : Fixx Cliff
Arguably the best route on the cliff. A very enjoyable climb with good protection the whole way up. A great route for any one looking to break into harder traditional climbing. The route has the occasional hand jams, finger locks, and many face holds to keep you guessing. The steepness of the climb at the top will pump you out if you hesitate to long, so place that 0 TCU (Saved by Zero) and go for it....[more] Browse More Classics in NV
