Description

Your Wall is a compact, secluded cliff with nice views of Ash Meadows and the Las Vegas valley. It is a vertical, varnished face identified by a large cutout of rock on its lower left side which forms a left-facing corner and a roof. The right side of the wall forms a left-facing corner with a lower angle ramp and overhanging bulge. It's located above and climber’s left of the Fringe. It's also across the wash from the Overlook. The wall is SE facing and visible from the Kraft parking lot. It gets lots of morning sun, and goes into the shade after noon in the winter, and after 2pm in the summer. All routes are bolt protected sport climbs. The approach is kinda long for a Red Rock sport climbing wall, but you won't deal with crowds at all, and there are other walls in the area to round out a full day.

Getting There

Your Wall is seen from the Kraft parking lot and along most of the lower part of the approach. Once into the scrambling you lose sight of it until you reach it. From Kraft parking lot head out through Ash Meadows (west-northwest from the parking lot) towards the Fringe/Overlook crags. After Ash Meadows area follow the main wash north for a couple hundred yards (past Ash Spring Boulders) until reaching an intersecting wash from the west. Head up this wash 200 yards, staying on the right side initially, then the left side up to the base of a short cliff. Walk right along this cliff until you reach a 7 foot boulder and trees clogging the narrowed wash. Scramble up the obvious path through this notch to a vegetated landing (25ft). (From here you would cut back to the left and up 20 feet to the base of the Overlook.) You can't see it from here, but Your Wall is straight above you through a couple hundred feet of scrambling.

There are two options for this final bit of approach, left/straight up the same wash, or right and up along a new wash that runs northward. Either way, from the narrow, high-walled, vegetated landing, scramble up on the right for 20-30 feet (you're going around the 20 foot waterfall cliff in the wash). At this point, there are 20ft boulders chocked above you and you have to choose left or right around them. The difficulty is the same either way. If you go left, continue up the main wash until you see Your Wall and follow your opinion of the path of least resistance to the base.
I suggest going right of the 20ft boulders as this is the approach for other walls further up. Continue right and up along the discontinuous, steep wash/terrace keeping the short cliff on your left. Keep an eye out for a very smooth 20-25 foot blank face with a diagonal laser-cut seam/crack splitting it in half. Directly in front of and to the left of this smooth face, scramble up on the left to a landing with prickly pear cacti and continue straight and flat for 50 feet to the base of the cliff. Takes about 45 minutes at a moderate pace.
