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.

Featured Route For Main Area
Lisa leading pitch 2 while Jon belays on a cool windy day.  The route is a clean dike, with steep cruxes and modern bolting unlike some of the original 1978 slab routes.  The route was abandoned; we found and used some of the original bolts on the first pitch.

Stairway to Heaven 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  NV : Christmas Tree Pass : Main Area
The East face of Stairway to Heaven Dome is found at the east side of the Main Area. The crux comes at end of pitch one, pinching small nipples on a steep face with very thin feet. The second pitch difficulties come after traversing left to the finishing dike: reachy and good holds. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
