BETA PHOTO: East face of MDM Dome NE route and Funnel of Love ...

Description 

North side of ridge with lower-angle east faces and steep west faces, generally. Many lines await. Few have been done and very few are documented. Climbing magazine had an article in 1977/78 (?) that outlined some routes. More have been done and the older routes have some bolts added.

Getting There 

Continue on Highway 163 west from Laughlin for a few miles to Christmas Tree Pass Road, pass Grapevine and Sacatone Canyons until the road turns left/west; park near your selected dome along the road. Some pullouts can be found farther along the road.

The route follows a distinct crack system up the right side of the east face. Pitch 2 goes up and left on easy rock to gain upper crack. Pitch 3 has crux at start, hand traverse left and gain second crack, nice hands to belay at final crack and top. You could try to wander north at summit to find rap for Funnel of Love and TR that route or wander south and down to small grove of trees where we rapped to exposed slab, unroped and 4th classed north to large boulder with sling for second and fin...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
