BETA PHOTO: Vegas Hose Monster

Mount Charleston Wilderness Area MORE INFO >>>


Three-pitch frozen popsicle located south of Cathedral peak. Approach as per South Loop trail, taking creek bed to the base. Third pitch is the best, the ice does not always touch down.

Check conditions from second pullout on Deer Creek Road (the one under Mom's Cave) using binos or spotting scope. Also visible from gravel turnout on right 3/4 mile before fire station, drive slow and keep your eyes peeled.

Doesn't that woman of yours have YOU sleeping with the hounds yet. If I came out there (and if it was a few years ago:-) I'd be sleeping with your biaaaatch while you spooned the hounds since I'd be the one doing the sending of this sick looking route. Nevada ice? Can't be! Let me know when it's in. Can I climb this one day and do epinephrine the next? If so I'm there!
