Approach, (or deproach) to oasis
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This nice sport area has a good mixture of 5.10 to 5.12 climbing. It is a bit involved to get to and entails some 4 class climbing. It should be more popular than it is.
From the first pullout hike up the drainage as if going to the Dog Wall. Continue past both the Dog Wall and the Fixx Cliff. Once past the Fixx Cliff wander up and right into a slot. Fourth class up to the spacious belay ledge.

A few hard crimp moves in the middle of the route and a fairly difficult clip off an insecure fingerlock and this one is over. Make sure your belayer is paying attention on this clip. If you come off with the rope in your hand you could hit the ledge behind you. The varnished edges at the top look like they could break at any time. Its probably not a good idea to climb this one if it's at all wet....[more] Browse More Classics in NV

You can also access this wall as per Tuna and Chips by hiking towards Panty Wall, then hooking back right into a flat wash below. This is way more relaxed than the gully scramble, but quite a bit longer.
You can also avoid the 4th class scramble by continuing up the main drainage past the wall to the top, then hooking left up the slabs above, and then hooking left again into a slot, which is the top of the Oasis wall, just below Money.
