Winter Heat 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  NV : Red Rock : ... : Winter Heat Wall
Fantastic route up beautiful chocolate colored rock. Follow the thin seam up the center of the wall to a large scoop. Place your pro fast to avoid burning out. Super fun and well worth a visit. Good protection for the entire length of the route, but place it when you can....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
