Description 

The lower eastern shoulder of Whiskey Peak is composed of the Lazy Buttress and several small faces that are to the left of the big white rockfall scar. There are many good moderate trad climbs in this area.

Several routes here end on or near the large platform called Lovers' Ledge. The easiest descent route crosses to the far side of the brushy gully behind the ledge, then goes up for 50 yards to the standard Whiskey Peak descent gully. This can be followed down and east, eventually wrapping around the base of the wall to the approach trail.


Getting There 

Walk west on the trail from the parking area. At the mouth of the canyon, the trail splits; take the uphill (left) branch directly up to the base of the wall. The trail reaches the rock immediately under Schaeffer's Delight.

Immediately above the spot where the Frogland approach trail reaches the base of the cliff is a clean varnished face. The right side of this face has an obvious S-shaped crack. Schaeffer's Delight starts just to the left of the S-shaped crack and follows magnificent 5.7 face-climbing past several bolts and a few small cam placements to a good belay ledge with a bush on it. You can rappel from this ledge with two ropes, as the first ascent party did in 1984. George Urioste returned a few year...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
