Mount Charleston Wilderness Area Details

Description

Fun multipitch route with steep, airy climbing. Can be wet in early season. First pitch 10d, second 10c/d, third 10a/b. The end of the second pitch is powerful and contrived, and can easily be climbed around at 5.6 R. The 5.10a/b crux on the 3rd pitch is a bit spicy!

Location

See red line in area photo.

Protection

Lots of bolts (12 or 14 on first pitch I think?), bolted anchors, and an intermediate rap anchor to allow 3 raps with a single 60m rope (watch rope ends!).

Only climbed first pitch, but after the 2nd bolt it's pretty good, if a tough onsight with no chalk. 25m to the first anchor. Jul 15, 2017

Don't waste your time on this one. The first pitch is OK, but the second is horrible. There is lots of loose rock and forced movement that is harder than the grade. Maybe all of the holds that made it 5.10 broke off already? Sep 28, 2014

Lisa Buchina and I climbed the route on July 4th and found most of the route contrived. The crux on the first pitch is downright weird and awkward. There's a lot of loose rock on this route. There are some bolts missing that make the third pitch very exciting. Very awkward finish. Because of body positioning, the route felt more trad then sport, despite the bolts. Jul 9, 2009
