Description Suggest change

This nice wall faces primarily west, but has some different aspects to it. Though it would generally get sun noon and past, depending on the season, I would imagine that one could find shade here and there beyond that hour.
The rock is mostly good and varies from thin to juggy, from slabby to steep, and has good routes across disciplines starting at about 5.11. Though most of these are sport, bring a rack for a few that are not.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach as for Running Man wall, but continue on the same tier for perhaps another 100 meters, passing The Nevada Book (nice photo on line) and continuing until some nice roofs are encountered. The first of these will contain the mixed Route 'Cut Loose'
