IMPORTANT: Waste bags are provided by the Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council in order to reduce human waste issues at the crags and boulders. Please feel free to take one, use as directed, and dispose of in any trash receptacle. Please do not leave them lying around, and do not throw them in the toilets at the parking areas. The project was funded primarily by the American Alpine Club's Cornerstone Conservation Grant, with additional funding from the Access Fund and Mountain Gear. Please do your part to be a good steward of this amazing climbing area.
To reach the Gallery, follow the trail from the second pullout until it forks, take the left fork and follow it up and over the hill to a pine tree in the wash. At this point you are directly below the Gallery. Cross the wash and follow the slabs up to the Gallery.
