BETA PHOTO: "The Chicken Ranch" goes up cracks and c...


This trough, with three converging cracks is near the center of the cliff. The two on the left go all the way to a notch on top. Climb using the two cracks on the left. There is a hole in the rock at the notch on top, that can be slung for an anchor.

  • The Chicken Ranch is a licensed brothel located in Pahrump, Nevada, about 60 miles west of Las Vegas.


Pro to 2.5". A protrusion of rock with a hole can be slung for the top anchor. Bring some long slings.

Surprisingly steep start for 5.6, this route is worth doing if only for the "ah ha!" of finding a few key holds that make it 5.6 instead of 7 or 8. Grainy rock that gets more crumbly as you go up.

The first 15 feet or so are fun and sporty. There's not much to it after that.
