The Sonic Youth Cliff is a NE facing cliff that is within perhaps 10 minutes walk of the Sandstone Quarry Parking lot. The cliff contains several lines, both trad and sport, primarily 5.11 and harder, though there are a few exceptions.
Park at the main lot for Sandstone quarry and head off north on the main trail until it becomes obvious to gain a trail to the west going up a hill to gain the ridge below Sonic Youth. From there, follow the ridge further N/NW to arrive at the base of the crag near your intended climb.

Sonic Youth 5.11b/c 6c+ 23 VIII- E4 6a NV : Red Rock : ... : Sonic Youth Cliff
This is an excellent route! The namesake of the Sonic Youth cliff, this route climbs through a series of pockets and crimps on the lighter-colored rock just left of the waterstreak. The crux starts past the halfway point and continues through the top (endurance), which includes pulling a bulge on some small crimps. =)This is a "must do" if you visit this area of Sandstone Quarry!...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
