Description

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

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'

[Hide Comment] Ben, you should check this mountainproject.com/v/nevad… out while you're there. Are you gonna be back in town for New Year's? I'm planning to be at shelf for that weekend. Dec 25, 2008
[Hide Comment] Anyone know what the undocumented route right of Choad Warrior is? Or the two undocumented routes between Marshall Amp and Stratocaster? Nov 17, 2012
[Hide Comment] Janes is referring to the new routes that have epoxy drip patterns spread out underneath the left one with shitty homemade permamank, and the one on the right with the extra visible black chains on bolts three feet apart on 5.8 moves.

I'd be happy to out the culprits on here, but the local ethic seems to be to keep that kind of information quiet. The right route isn't bad minus the chain nonsense, the one on the left looks like a glued up pile that isn't calling my name with so many good pitches nearby.

Respect for getting the epoxy everywhere, that was a really nice touch. Green energy, recycling and wind power, spattered glue all over the place. One world. Nov 29, 2012

[Hide Comment] Noticed the red tag and bail biners were removed from the long standing project between tier of titans and titan rocket. Anyone got the deets? Also, what's the story with the half bolted line next to it? Anyone coming back to finish it? Mar 17, 2022
