Beer and Ice Gully Rock Climbing
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
The Beer and Ice Gully is a little travelled area that is home to some testpiece routes in Red Rock. Along with Terminal Velocity (5.13a), numerous .11's and .12's can be found here, along with the potential for many more! The rock quality is good overall, and the gully is shaded most of the day.
From Straight Shooter, head west and hug the cliff, then head up into the first major gully you come to. This is the Beer and Ice Gully. Most of the routes are back in quite a ways, and its a bit of a slog to get up there. Some interesting 4th class is involved. Routes are, for the most part, on your right.

The pump is severe but eventually a stem across the chasm provides a dramatic reprieve. Continue up to a rap tr...[more] Browse More Classics in Nevada
