This is the small summit on the left side of the canyon (in front of Black Velvet Peak from the parking lot). Of course, small is relative here as its NE face is probably 700' high in places. Routes on this face tend to be quite shady and can be very cold on windy days, or in the winter.
Walk up the main drainage and head left ot the base of the wall, depending on the route. Approaches to all routes on this wall are less than 1/2 hour, and many are popular.

Featured Route For Whiskey Peak
Frogland 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c NV : Red Rock : ... : Whiskey Peak
A great route! And VERY popular. Start early.For the approach, take the trail that skirts the pink cliff band on the left. Work your way around the cliff band and to the right. Look for a huge roof capping a large slab and make your way to the crack on the right side of this feature. Scramble up a few 4th-class sections to the a nice terrace and the beginning of a LF corner/crack that has a few bolts (why?)... P1: 5.7, 150' Climb a crack in a block (awkward) to gain the left-facing corner...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
