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.
This climb is the extension to Los Banditos. Climb to the anchor of Los Banditos, take a long rest and then launch into the climbing above. Joe Dirt starts with a big move right away, followed by sustained crimping on mostly positive holds. There are lots of rests along the way, so find them and milk them, as the crux comes at the second to last bolt. This crux requires the use of a mono pocket for most, so be aware if you have an aversion to using them. I usually avoid routes that have monos, but this one is not too bad. The crux also has a lot of moves and penalizes failure with a lot of air time.
