Mount Charleston Wilderness Area Details
Much of this area is in the Mount Charleston Wilderness Area, learn which crags are within our outside of it before you go. See the BLM Fact Sheet blm.gov/sites/blm.gov/files… for a good overview of what it protects and what that limits, and the Forest Service page fs.usda.gov/detailfull/htnf… for other information.
DescriptionThese falls may be lost for a reason! This route is a mere thirty feet long. However, it is an excellent place for beginners to try and swing their tools for the first time.
Follow the South Loop Trail for approximately two miles. Not long after passing the Las Vegas Hose Monster drainage, the trial will begin to wind uphill towards an obvious gap between the rocky peaks. A large cliff will appear on the left. Ascend this steep drainage to the base of the falls. This approach takes between one and two hours depending on snow conditions.
Climb the obvious route. One may be able to scramble up to the left in order to set up a top-rope.
Rappel the route using a tree or scramble down climber's left.
