Riding Hood Wall has a few nice crack climbs on its north face. This is one of the larger rock formations in the Calico Basin area. One can descend any route by rapping off the west face, and then down climbing a steep gully.
Park at the Red Springs Picnic Area. Get there by taking the Calico Basin road to a T-junction, then take a left and park. Walk the trail north and west a short while, passing close by to the Cannibal Crag (huge boulder with bolted routes and overhanging faces). Continue a short ways down the trail, then wander up left through the boulders and slabs towards the largest rock formation in sight. This is the Riding Hood Wall.

Many people only do the quality first pitch, and then rappel.P1) Make sure to protect the beginning moves well. This is the crux and the landing is not great. Pull through the roof crack with varnished rock. Continue up easier climbing to some slings in the crack for a belay.P2) Continue up the same crack system for a full rope length to the top...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
