Description

William Shakespeare wrote a play filled with some of the best potential route names of perhaps any work written in the English language. One of the crags in Red Rock Canyon has taken advantage of this literary gift, The Hamlet.
The Hamlet and The J Wall :
Hamlets topo or the J Wall page here on MP.

Getting There

For those familiar with the area
Panty Wall OR Ultraman Wall , The Hamlet sits directly between these two crags. Its most notable feature is a giant incut arch with a blank face on the left side of the upper wall.
For those unfamiliar with the area
Tiger Stripe Wall).
Southern Nevada Climbers Coalition. Continuing up and out past it will bring you to the base of the hamlet. There are obvious variations to this portion of the approach depending on your scrambling ability or if you should concede to walk the long way around some formations. However at this point the wall is always visible , so as long as you are moving toward it you should be fine. (15-20min total)
