Sunnyside is a nice trad crag with a very short approach. Although there are more difficult lines here, this area is mostly popular for it's moderate lines. Unfortunately, the dimensions of Icebox Canyon limit the best season of the crag, as it is mostly sunny in the summer and mostly shady in the winter. The best routes include Magellanic Cloud and the Cold September Corner.

Getting There 

From the Icebox Canyon parking lot, hike up the very nice trail into the canyon for about 15 minutes. As the trail becomes close to the north (right) wall of the canyon, start looking for the distinctive corners of the crag and a trail that will bring you to the cliff. It is relatively easy to miss, if you get to the point where the trail drops down into the bottom of the canyon, you've gone too far.

When hiking into Icebox pay attention to the north side of the canyon. You will pass several small caves and roofs before reaching varnished rock. Keep going - Spring Break lies slightly west of the Magellanic Cloud/Cold September Corner area on a rectangular face of dark rock immediately left of a huge right facing corner capped by chossy roofs. There is a ledge atop this face with a communal anchor at a large horizintal break where the rock becomes less neat and more cruddy.Spring Break asc...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
