Mount Charleston Wilderness Area MORE INFO >>>


This cliff is characterized by a cream-colored vertical main wall which contains 4 excellent moderate routes. It is flanked on the left by a shorter overhanging wall, and on the right by a route up a section of rough grey limestone. The is sunny until about noon, when it goes into shade.

Routes from left to right:

Feed the Tree (5.11d)
unnamed (5.11-)
No Name (5.10b)
The Punisher (5.10)
1057 (5.10)
Yellow Pine (5.10)
unknown 2 (5.11-)

Getting There 

This cliff lies up wash from Mary Jane Wall. It is elusive, as one can not see the crag well through the trees until you are directly below it. Best way to find it- from wash below Mary Jane Wall- keep heading up wash along base of hillside until you have a clear view of Mary Jane Falls off to the right. There is an obvious rock cairn at the base of the short trail that leads up and out of wash to the crag.

Another classic 5.10 route that is probably the best of the grade at Mt. Charleston - as if there are many 5.10's up there anyway. Blocky edge climbing with a bit of a crux at the 4th bolt. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada

To get to this crag, follow the trail towards Mary Jane Falls. After about 15 minutes of hiking you'll come across a big cairn sitting on top of a tree stump on your left hand side. Turn left here and head straight across the wash where you'll soon come across more big cairns and eventually the hillside with the crag a short distance up a little trail.

This Crag has all new Mussys on almost every route, which is sweet. People should not toprope through them, and only lower on the fixed gear on the party's last burn.
