This corridor is in the shade most of the day, until the late afternoon. For being as close to the parking lot as it is, this crag is never crowded. This is likely due to the lack of moderates to be found here. Never-the-less, if it is hot outside, and you are looking for shade, and some difficult routes... this might just be your destination.
This is the obvious north-south running corridor located about 75 yards due east from the Sandstone Quarry parking lot.

Perhaps the finest sport climb in Red Rock. Two bolts of 5.9 jugginess lead to the first of many powerful boulder problems. Enjoy the variety (and the mandetory all points off dyno) and grimace through the crimpers on this beautiful classic!...[more] Browse More Classics in NV

According to my guidebook there are 5 routes on the left side but there now appears to be 7?
The last 4 seem pretty obvious, Churning, SoP, Sunsplash, and M. Skank.
I did the farthest left...cool slopey jugs to some crimps to a ledge and then pull a little roof to the chains. I think that's Pockets of Dirt.? (seemed easy for 11d?) Any idea what the other 2 are? In between Pockets and Churning?
