The Mass Production Wall Rock Climbing
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This cliff is a perfect spot to climb on a hot summer day, as it remains in the shade all day long. The seven routes that are located at this crag range from a reachy 5.8 to a solid 5.11. All of the routes are enjoyable, and it makes for a fun day to climb all of them (or as many as you can) in one day. =)
**Roxanna's new guide book has the routes at MPW mislabeled (They are all shifted one route over...)**
Follow the Calico Tanks trail from the parking lot. This will take you behind Calico Mt. As you begin to climb in elevation up the wash, you will go up several staircases that have been created. MPW is the large light-colored sandstone formation a hundred yards up the hillside on the left (north) before you reach the top of the wash trail. Veer left and follow the trail to the base of the cliff.

Scramble to the large ledge and clip the first bolt. The climbing gets thin as you move higher to the second bolt, with a nervous clip (as you might brush the ledge if you fall). This starts the crux sequence of smearing your feet and crimping your fingers. The crux continues from the moment you reach the start of the patina until you successfully reach the end of the black surface.FYI- This route is rated 5.11b in the guidebooks, yet I have seen 5.12 climbers fall from the second and third bolt...[more] Browse More Classics in Nevada

Glad someone's cleared up the ratings snafu! That "10a" felt harder than P5 of Levitation to me-thiiiiiin! Nice routes on this wall no matter what you call 'em.

On 2/21/11, the ASCA finished major rebolting work on this wall- all routes are now equipped with 1/2" bolts and new anchor hardware.

No one's mentioned that this wall faces about due North, so in the summer months it stays in the shade for a pretty long time (??till about noon or 1 o'clock ??)
