Description

This is the most dangerous wall on planet Earth. It's kind of like a combination of the most dangerous routes on Annapurna and K2 put together...except the wall's not at altitude, the lines are tightly bolted, the rock is good, the lines are 40 to 50-feet tall, it's usually warm, and it's only a 15-minute approach. Aside from those facts, it's really really really dangerous.

The Wall of Death is like that movie, The Ring. If you look at it - even from the parking lot - you'll probably die...someday. This place is sketchier than a 20-year-old bro trying to "teach" his girlfriend how to climb. I mean, it's even sketchier than some of the advice given in the forum section of this website...

So what' I'm saying is don't go here... You'll be scared the whole time and it will scar you for life.

Aside from that, here's some beta:

This is a west facing crag in the Calico Hills. The belays for the right-hand side of the crag are shaded by a giant fin of rock (that will probably topple over and kill everyone in Las Vegas some day).

The rock is mostly good. It will continue to clean up as more people climb at the area. But it's unlikely anyone will ever come here, because this is the WALL OF DEATH.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Approach as for Ultraman Wall. This area is found directly beneath Ultraman.

If there were ever any kind of helicopter or plane crash at Ultraman, all the debris would fall down on top of you at the Wall of Death...because it's just that kind of place...

If you can figure out how to get to the Wall of Death, it will take about 15-minutes. If you can't, you might end up on Epinephrine by accident. That would be a really big mistake, and it would take a really long time to walk there from the First Pullout...

Seriously Jason? I guess the Jabba the Hut story has run its course and it must be time for a 2nd edition of Fun Climbs in Red Rock. Or maybe Andre H. nailed it: could you stuff 9 climbers and a sponsored athlete there for Top-Roping 101 sessions during the Rendezvous? Works for me. As long as nobody dies. Dec 2, 2016
