This is an area of cliffs a few hundred yards east of Lotta Balls, on the south side of the canyon.
Follow the First Creek trail into the mouth of the canyon. A few hundred yards before reaching the Lotta Balls Wall is the actual Mudterm cliff. It is a small white outcrop above an area of pink rock. There are many broken buttresses and ribs nearby.

Lucky Nuts is the most prominent route in the Mudterm area- in the large white corner, there is an arching flake system that arches up and left to meet with another large flake to form a corner. Climb up this part, then follow the corner to a ledge. From here, move up, then right and up to belay. This route is fairly sustained and was originally led with passive gear in 1977!...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
