Unknown 5.9 (AKA L3)

5.9+ PG13, Sport, 60 ft,  Avg: 2 from 159 votes
FA: unknown
Nevada > Southern Nevada > Red Rock > 04-Second Pullo… > Black Corridor > Lower Level > Lower Level - Left
Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details


This is a new route in the corridor- the third on your left as you enter the lower tier, it ascends an obvious line of features.

  • Care should be taken on this route as many of the features are hollow and the route is still shedding rock. The bolts are also spaced somewhat, so be mindful.


Third route on left.

[Hide Comment] I don't recall much if any loose rock on this one. Thought this was easier than the two 5.9s to the left. Mar 6, 2012
[Hide Comment] Climbed this today and most of that flake halfway up is now gone. There's still some left that seems pretty weak, so I wouldn't recommend trying to use it. Climb around left or right -- either is harder than the rest of the route. May 19, 2012

[Hide Comment] The big hollow flake about 30 feet up was intentionally torn off by visiting climbers while lowering off on 5/15/12. Bravo for their public service! The climb is much safer, although quite dusty below the demolition. And it's probably a bit harder now. Still needs traffic to spruce it up. May 21, 2012

[Hide Comment] I lead this before the flake came off, but did not feel comfortable leading it after the flake came down. Just be aware that it is a different climb now. Jul 28, 2012
[Hide Comment] Felt kind of Slab like. I am not that much of a confident climber and it had some decent runout to the anchor when I clipped into the anchor the last bolt was about 10 to 15 feet below my shoes. Dec 16, 2013
[Hide Comment] Seems pretty clean now, I think the PG13 can be removed. Feb 24, 2014

[Hide Comment] Not a bad route, but not great. Somewhat tentative movement on decent crimps and footholds. There are definitely better climbs nearby. Did not feel like any holds were coming off. Nov 24, 2014
