Best cliff here, perfectly overhanging, northwest-facing wall, just north of Trophy towards Turtlehead Peak. Hides the hardest collection of routes at Red Rocks and is probably the best wall for 13s. Not a crowded area either... yet... Not the greatest warm-ups though.
Hike as you're headed towards The Trophy Wall but continue straight where Trophy trail heads right on Turtlehead trail. Once walls diminish, curve right down backside of cliffband til you see the sweeping overhanging wall about 70 ft tall. (This wall can also be accessed by hiking through Trophy area and down backside of cliff through a ravine -- not recommended).

Just right of Go a Hundred, start on big lefthand flake then up smaller sidepulls and edges to good rest before smooth midsection wall. Bouldery moves to a weird "hole" then even more difficult moves to big rest hole. Straight up decent holds to exciting slabby topout finish. Classic climb on good rock! ...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
