Newcastle Crag Rock Climbing
harder side of the crag
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This wall is located almost exactly halfway between the first and second pullouts, and can be approached from either in about 15 minutes. The wall is located at the very bottom of the wash directly below the Ultraman Wall.
Variety of routes from moderate top-ropes to short 10+-11+ sport routes. Shady-- a nice spot to hide from the sun. Rock is chossy at the start and cleans up nicely the higher you go.
Approach as for Ultraman wall. When you are standing in the wash looking up at Ultraman, the cliff is right behind you-climbs start directly from the wash.

Interesting choppy crack with enjoyable stem and lie-back maneuvers. Quite short, but full of an abundance of formations that allow any beginner with will-power to scramble up it with a smile. Feels easier if you have crack climbing experience....[more] Browse More Classics in NV

There are about 5 (5.8-5.9) routes on the left side of New Castle Crag about 30 feet to the left of the 5.10/11 routes. The easier wall may also be known as "Mark and Jake's Area". All routes are listed in the new Black Book.
Another way to think about getting there:
On the trail to Ultraman, once you descend into the wash, continue walking straight West-Northwest, instead of walking North towards the Ultraman wall. Look for the 4' wide 30' high passage between two massive rocks, the left side of the passage is the start of New Castle Crag.
Walk around to the SE end of the formation and just scramble/walk up it to the anchors.

This crag has cleaned up quite nicely. The wall with the 10's and 11's was a hidden gem.
