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.
I would guess that establishing this route involved a lot of trundling, but the end result is excellent. This is a high quality route with several distinct cruxes: A burly start with poor feet leads to a no-hands rest (if your leg is the right length), continue up through the low roof and establish above and try to recover before a second crux moving off a pair of vertical slots to an undercling and a few more hard moves. Above this it's just a matter of staying calm during a run from the last bolt up sharp rock to the anchor.
