Description

Bullet black rock, nice moderate routes, & fantastic position make the Luxor wall a fine piece of rock and will leave you wishing for more. The only drawback is a hour and a half walk. The small wall faces east and is shaped much like a pyramid with view of the vegas strip and its namesake casino.

Getting There

The bad news is the approach will take from 1 to 2 hours. The good part is that there is little to no bushwacking and the routefinding is straightforward.

To access this small crag go up Juniper Canyon. Approach as if your are heading to black dagger following cairns NE/E and paralleling the Brownstone wall. Continue uphill on slabs past Armatron until you reach a broad white shoulder with a ridge jutting out east from the brownstone. This is the top of the west end of jackrabbit buttress (Geronimo, etc) Continue NE on 4th class ledges with some exposure for a short bit to access a large slopped ledge that is the base of the wall. The wall is triangular in shape and is entirely covered with black varnish.
