Access Issue: 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 Sheetblm.gov/sites/blm.gov/files… for a good overview of what it protects and what that limits, and the Forest Service pagefs.usda.gov/detailfull/htnf… for other information.
Two short cruxes bookended by very moderate climbing. First crux is bouldery and sure to spit off those who don't like open handed slopers, and after trying to rest on the very sharp holds, second crux has a difficult clip (long draw reccommended) and a hard move to an ugly chipped pocket. From there on it's hanging on and not pumping off. The highlight of the route is the finishing movement and features; the rock cleans up a lot once the difficulty eases and the top third of this route could be a fun and worthwhile toprope appropriate for people who've just led MJ11b and feel like a little extra milage. The quality of the first crux is high but this is not a destination route for those climbing the grade by any means with the proximity of the Glass House, Imagination Wall, the Roost, and the Hood.
