Access Issue: Mount Charleston Wilderness Area Details

Description

This is a chossy cliff. It is the nature of the rock, and it does add danger to the area. The use of helmets and caution are highly recommend while climbing here. Be weary from rockfall off the upper tier as well as when pulling rope.

If you don't mind a bit of choss you will be rewarded with some technical face climbs that I believe are very enjoyable for the grades. Many of the holds are disguised or nuanced within the routes and the views are quite nice.

All of the climbs on the upper tier require a 70m rope. Slow lowering is recommended due to the sharp nature of the chert rails. While the climbs tend to be chossy down low, rock quality improves as you go higher.

Getting There

Easiest access to the upper tier by rope is to climb up Chert Reynolds or Cherts and Ladders as the anchors gain the upper ledge. I do not promote free soloing, but if you choose to, going up the 5.4 and then heading up and right through the chossy steps is the easiest way up.

Rapping off the Chert Reynolds anchors is the best way back down.
