Description 

This area has a variety of conditions depending on the route you choose to climb. You can always expect some spectators, as it is only a few minutes down the trail from the second pullout parking lot. The most appealing route in this area is the namesake arete, "Meister's Edge" 5.11a. It is considered a classic in the Swain Guide, and I agree. If you are walking through this area, and are not afraid of mantle moves, you should definitely plan on stopping here. =)

Getting There 

This area is on your way to the Black Corridor, and has a few routes. It is located at the bottom of the main trail, and before you enter the tanks on the way to the corridor. The routes are found on the West side of the trail.

Featured Route For Meister's Edge
The crux above the second mantle.

Meister's Edge 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c PG13  NV : Red Rock : ... : Meister's Edge
The crux occurs after the second mantle move, when you have to pull through a small left hand crimp. I rated this route PG-13, in that if you fell before clipping the second bolt (while performing the first mantle) you would likely fall onto the huge boulder underneath. This route is really more like three small boulder problems, in that you could fall asleep resting on the ledges after you pull the moves. =)...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
