Snail Trails 5.13a/b 8a 29 IX+ 29 E7 6c  NV : Mount Charleston : Robber's Roost
Start on A fun bit of short steep climbing, then figure out how to pull the lip. A classic technical slab with awesome pinches and under clings leads to a great rest on a flake. Pull off the flake onto continuous long moves on good holds to an the big under cling then a tecky finish on perfect blue stone. Make sure you have a 70 meter rope or you'll be rethreading at some point....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

Climbers should be aware that fixed draws are only on the EXTENSIONS for the most part at the Roost these days. The harder stuff (America's Most Wanted, etc) still have chains/project draws, but the .11s are clip your own now.
