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.
To all the 'hardmen' (and women) this is considered the warm-up for the harder pocketed problems. I consider it a great route on its own merits. A mix of face, crack, and pocket climbing technique can be used.
This route has two starts, both beginning underneath the large pine tree. The first begins up the water chute for two bolts (and is done less often due to being wet and muddy from water seepage/runoff). The more frequently done start climbs past two bolts up the face/ramp to the right, and then traverses left through a pod to the remaining chain-draw line. Pass a couple more chain draws, and when you reach the large hole/pocket move up and right (crux:no feet) towards the anchors past the final chain draw.
