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.
DescriptionThe Imaginator is a consistant and fun outing up the center of the Imagination Wall.
Begin at the center of the wall near a fairly tall tree. There are three small, short dihedrals here (maybe 40' tall). The leftmost one has a black roof/bulge extending from it's top off to the left. Begin in the rightmost one.
P1: Climb up the dihedral past a few bolts then continue up the face above to a pillar-feature. Bear-hug up this feature past two or three bolts, then through the roof (crux) and belay at an uncomfortable stance underneath another roof. 130', 5.11c.
P2: Skirt the roof to the left then head up to a very obvious wedge-shaped corner/roof feature. Pull around this to the left and establish above with some difficulty. Continue up to a good belay stance. 100', 5.11b.
P3: Climb up off the belay past a bunch of weird iron intrusions. A difficult blank stretch leads to easier climbing and the top of the wall. 120', 5.11a.
Rap the route with a single 70m rope. Make sure your rope is not a hair shorter than 70m -- you can only get down from the 3rd and 1st pitches with rope strech.
