Description 

With a handful of excellent leads, top ropes, and boulder problems right out of the wash, Snake Eyes provides moderate to hard lounging and climbing in equal measure. A couple routes have bolts but all of them require gear. Or large and committing run-outs. All of the anchors are fashioned with natural gear and extra rope or sling is very useful for setting up top ropes.

Getting There 

From the mouth of the canyon, go a couple hundred feet up the wash and pass the huge chock stone. Just past this, in the narrowest part of the lower canyon, Snake Eyes is the first wall on the left. Descent: From the top of the wall, go climbers left down the shallow 4th class gully; be mindful of the petroglyphs and stay clear of them. Or go climbers right up past the Demonstrator and Shark Fin Walls to the top of the Chuckwalla Couloir, and take this back down to the wash.

Climb the boulder problem start done by George a few years earlier (exits down left from the high end of the shallow ramp) and step up and right to the first bolt 30 or so feet off the ground. Medium quality brass nuts or Lowballs can be found to protect the move to the bolt. Two more bolts lead up through the first roof and the crux. Jog right as the roof is pulled and stand up to one more bolt. Climb up and left around the second roof finishing straight up on a seam with a sleeper 10a exit mov...[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
