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 the easiest of the extensions on the routes at the Roost, and one of the most fun that I've done. Bring a 70m and expect to use the entire thing! Hang tough through a couple cruxes (good holds appear quickly above each of them) and the chains are yours.
When lowering off, it's a good idea to unclip all but the first chain draw to straighten the rope and give you a few extra feet of slack to get down. It can be a very close lower with a 70m if your 70m is older or cut at exactly 70m.
