Description 

This crag is conveniently easy to get to from the Ragged Edges Area, and hosts several moderate lines of good quality. Protection is mostly mixed.

Getting There 

Approach as for Ragged Edges Area. I like to park at the first parking area, and then follow the main trail until an obvious right turn by a large boulder brings you closer to the cliff. From Ragged Edges, walk north along the base of the cliff and follow the best trail you can find that continues uphill and right. Soon you will arrive at a nice, large ledge at the base of the Case Face.

This route is located about 10 feet right of the left side of the Case Face. Climb a steep section past a bolt (5.7 crux) into a crux. Continue up easier ground following this left-trending crack. Belay at the top of the crack wherever possible. This is a fun, easy trad lead.Descent:A slightly nerve-wracking downclimb is possible. From the belay, traverse left across a slab (scary) to a corner, then downclimb a slab towards the base of the climb. It also appears that some people rap from a smal...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
