Description [Suggest Change]
Racetrack Rocks sits on the east side of Henderson in a small cul de sac of washes that converge at the edge of the valley. It’s made up of excellent basalt (only a little crumbly!) and has a fair amount of bouldering with sit down starts to almost highball problems. The short cliffs that line the sides of this drainage, and a nipple of a hill that rises up from the wash, also have good but fractured rock with a few easy boulder problems and trad climbs. Kent Dirby is the first climber known to have visited the area back around 1990.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
The rocks and small distinct hill are visible from much of Henderson. Take Equestrian Dr east until it turns to dirt, in a quarter mile it Ts at a power line, turn left, go another quarter mile to a dirt road on the right at the next power line tower. Park at a wide section of the road just above the wash. Most of the climbing is down low a few hundred feet up the wash but there's opportunity all around this little bowl.
