Mount Charleston Wilderness Area Details

Description

The first route right of the unbolted scooped/overhanging area. This route might need more cleaning in the crack/ramp area. Beware the black death guano.

Not a very consistent route. Basically it is 5.10+ climbing to a 3-4 move V6/7? to 5.9 climbing.

Crux is an undercling above ramp to a nasty upside down sidepull or gaston to two micro-crimps to a jug above and left of the 5th bolt. Vicious!

Location

Just right of the unbolted overhanging area. There is a crack/ramp area after the 2nd bolt.

Protection

6 stainless bolts to double mussy anchor.

This route was bolted solely for the purpose of allowing for the attempted first ascent, and the attempted first ascent information is posted here solely to document the history of the first ascent. No person should read this posting with the assumption that this route or the fixed gear left behind is safe in any way or otherwise appropriate to allow for safe subsequent ascents. Climbing is dangerous and should only be done with the appropriate training and risk management practices that include providing for the climberÂ’s own safety. Attempting to climb this route as described above or by any other means or methods could result in injury or death.
