Looking for some nice 3+ pitch suggestions for these dates.  I am not looking to hike in more than 30 minutes, only up to 5.9, and in the shade preferably.  I am also doing my own research here, but thought I would ask.  When I get closer to my trip I will post for a partner with a rope, rack, and ride, unless someone wants to step up in this thread.  Thanks in advance and CLIMB HARD!

Angel food wall after 11am or noon and it will be in the shade. Tunnel vision or pur blind pillar. Take lots of water and a brimmed hat for the hike.

Might try Mt. Charleston that time of year. Much more comfortable up there that time of year.

Lol, I was just coming to this thread to say that tunnel vision on july 4th last year was an excellent outing starting the hike at about 1030 am.

Not wanting Mt. Charleston because it's single pitch, but yes... an option.  Looks like Angel Food Wall it will be.  I especially like where it says an easy 30 minute approach.  Thanks everyone!!

BTW, you do know that it will likely be very warm in Red Rock on those dates. Makes sense that you would rather not hike more than 30 minutes.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
