One way to do this climb.

Description 

This very sunny cliff contains high quality one pitch climbs which are mostly bolted and relatively long -- generally two ropes are needed to rappel.


Getting There 

This wall is at most a ten minute walk east from the Sandstone Quarry parking area. Before going to this cliff for the first time, it is a good idea to identify it from the road, on the drive to the parking lot, using the photo in Swain.

Swain includes complicated direction for finding the cliff, which can be simplified to take a trail from the southeast corner of the parking lot and follow your nose.

Running Man 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  NV : Red Rock : ... : Running Man Wall
One of my favorite single-pitch climbs in the country, it is of a piece with other masculine enduro-classics such as Quarter of a Man and Mister Clean. Features slightly overhanging Red Rocks crimping. Starts with a cruxy move by the first bolt (harder if short), followed by a long stretch of 5.10 climbing with no real rests and ends with a semi-cruxy move just below the anchors.The start of the climb is easy to find with the Swain guide. This climb is in the sun almost the entire day....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
