BETA PHOTO: Looking down the 130' of the first pitch (5.8ish) ...
This is route "D" in the photo.
This is the prominent crack system running straight up the right side of the Necromancer wall. Can't miss it. Most of this is sort of 5.5 jugs, but there's a fifteen foot section of 5.8 finger crack about 90 feet up that takes you to the anchor. Rap with two ropes. Note: I'd guess this would be a pretty good lead for someone looking to break into the 5.8 range.
Standard rack. Small to #3 Camalot or so. Bring a few doubles in the bigger cams if you want to sew it up.

This route is fun!
I thought this wall was in the shade all day, but it actually is in the sun between 1 and 4 PM or so, at least in April.

The first 2/3 of the route is rather uninteresting. The crack on the top is nice though, 5.8- move, but short. Rap bolts on the top.

Fun First Pitch.
Top rope the line to the right. Same start. Easy for 50ft.
Great moves between features on that patina slab to finish.
Probably 5.9. (Maybe still) waiting for a lead, as I told VegasTradGuy at the crag 18Mar07. Go get it.

Climbed this - made this into a two pitch climb... Went left on a traverse with sparce placements to the bolt and up to the tree anchor. Go left of the tree anchor to exit the 2nd pitch and not up the unimpressive chimney above...

Only climbed the first pitch, the crack at the top is fun, too bad it's not more sustained.

We did this on March 17, 2011 and climbed the second pitch pretty much straight up from the belay after P1. It involved following the standard way until the left end of the small overhang then up the wall above. I found it run-out, but did get a couple of good pieces in. It ends up a short, broken corner.

The first pitch is remarkably like the last pitch of Birdland: easy jugs to a finger crack with thin feet. A really fun pitch.

Climbed " Fold Out " on Sat., May 28, 2011. Great climb! The start of the climb was fun with big holds, the last 20 feet... WOW!! Fantastic moves to the anchors!

The first pitch goes over some very interesting sandstone rock. Beautiful. Looks almost like coral. I'm sure a fall would NOT be comfortable for a leader on this pitch. However, the climbing is easy for the grade, up to the finger crack, which is probably 5.8. The finger crack at the top of pitch 1 is great fun! Had to rap down from the top of pitch 1 due to the sun going down.

2nd pitch is well worth doing. Be sure to protect the initial traverse for the follower, but plenty of jugs everywhere. Nothing on this route felt harder than 5.7. A lot easier than Hop Route on the left side of the wall. 2nd pitch is a full 60 meters to good belay location just below the summit boulder.

A 70meter cord will get you from the anchors at the top of the first pitch well into the very easy downclimb zone. It got us to the starting ledge about 6ft up.
Good route, super juggy and then a few nice moves to get to the belay. Sm to med nuts at the top crux in the finger crack. Will eat most anything you toss at it for pro.
