Black Dagger 5.7+ | Red Rock Canyon

Recent Route: Black Dagger a sandbagged 5.7+ PG13 in Red Rock Canyon. There’s much to said about this route and it’s great 6 pitches. The route is a bit adventurous and bold, in my opinion but offers beautiful views of Red Rock and varied climbing. While the route is rated a 5.7, I would recommend if for a 5.9 leader or higher. The route has face climbing, some off-width climbing as well as a nice little chimney to squeeze yourself through. Not to mention the 2 hour approach, this climb requires a big chunk of your day! This type of climbing is some of my favorite. I love being able to spend the entire day out in nature. Thinking of nothing else other than task at hand– climbing. There are no cell phones to be answered, no texts to reply to, no facebook status to update. It’s my partner, I, and the rock. The only other thing that may have my attention is the beauty of the surrounding area....
