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.
DescriptionThis is a multi-cruxed action packed route. Start out on the strange downward sloping pinch holds with slick feet. Climb up to the overlap and pull up on to the slab. Here you climb some technical face to get to the overhanging corner above.
There are three ways to finish this route.
The original finish: Head left to the arete at the top of the corner and clip the anchor(12c).
The Card Cheat finish: From the original anchor, go straight up past two more bolts (12d).
The Dan McQuade finish: instead of going left at the end of the overhanging corner, go straight up past two more bolts (12d).
