RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The lump on the right entrance of Stick Gulley, essentially the south buttress of the Flight Path area. Quality climbing despite a bit of dustiness. Plenty of sun. Karmic History, Karmic History, and Repeated Histrionics all top out at roughly the same place. 30 feet of slings around a big block would enable a rappel toward Stick Gully with a single 60 meter rope. Otherwise, spiral around to the right on easy ground with rope drag potential to gain the summit. A 60 m rope will barely get you down from the summit in a single rappel toward Stick Gulley; a 70 m or doubles will spare the ledge dancing. 30 feet of slings/old rope to bolster the anchor might generate a warm fuzzy feeling. Approach ~30 minutes.

Getting There 

Hike to the mouth of Stick Gulley, cross the wash & boulder fields, & pick your climb.

Lake Mead Exotic Plant Control Crew 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Nevada : Red Rock : ... : The Hog Wart
Varied, wide crack climbing to, then past, the triangular roof. If you own multiple #4 and #5 camalots, this climb is for you; if you don't own these fine items, this is your excuse. The climb gets plenty of sun on a winter day. No exotic plants were harmed during our ascent, but the crew was busy along the loop road that afternoon....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
