Description

Ice? Near Las Vegas? Couldn't be...

Suprisingly enough a small number of ice climbs come in on Mount Charleston with some regularity. Most of these climbs are easily accessible from the road and require little commitment.

One word of caution, some ice formations don't bond well on the limestone. Be sure to evaluate your climb closely before committing to it.
