The exposed and beautiful approch to Jet Stream Wa...

Description 

I recently came across some routes on this wall, I don't know who did them or when they were first done, but have taken the liberty of writing descriptions and giving them names. Anyone who knows the real names should feel free to correct what I write here.This wall is high, shady, and very exposed to winds, making it perfect for warmer weather. The rock is superb, with long cracklines, elegant, clean cut corners and none of the flakiness so common in Red Rocks.


Getting There 

This wall is the north face of Juniper Peak, considering the location it has a very reasonable approach. Go up the Olive Oil descent gully, this is the first gully to the north of Rose Tower. From the saddle at the top of the gully get onto the ridge on the left (south) and follow it to a tower, follow ledges around the left side of the tower and continue to the saddle at the top of the Olive Oil approach gully. Cross the top of the gully and pick up a trail which heads west staying fairly close to the base of the wall. This leads across to the base of the Jet Stream Wall. 1hr 10 mins total. A steep but surprisingly straightforward approach with some amazing views.

The Incredible second pitch of Drifting

Drifting 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- E4 6a PG13  NV : Red Rock : ... : Jet Stream Wall
Although much of Red Rocks climbing is indistinguishable and unmemorable, every once in awhile I chance upon a gem of unprecedented quality. Drifting is one such route, and given that it is relatively new, it proves that Red Rocks still has much untapped potential. The route is largely up perfect rock, has a lot of variety, and a few outrageous sections. Bolted right where it needs to be, this route has demanding climbing both mentally and physically, and is thoroughly enjoyable.Begin on the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

Though the approach described above up the Olive Oil descent gully is no doubt faster, it's also reasonable to get to/from this wall using the 3rd class gully down to its right, from the Challenger Wall/Adventure Punks area.

I would definitely suggest the Olive Oil approach. While steep, it is much shorter and more straightforward than coming up by Challenger. Additionally, the routes on the Jet Stream Wall only require a light rack and this the gully is really not that bad.
