Brad Stewart & Dan Meyers
A few small cams, medium nuts and a few cams up to 4 inches
Drive past the outhouse wall up Lovell Canyon Road for about 300 yards to a small turnout on the left. The route is up the hillside on the right. It's about a 60 foot high crack with some face moves to get to a left slanting straight in handcrack. This route is not in the guidebook and it is one of the better cracks in Redrock.
Rappel with one rope off a tree (bring webbing!) or walk off left.

Great trad pitch for this area. The crux is getting started. It is a bit blind moving into the twin cracks from the right. You can get a C4#1 in before making the move. Easy climbing gets you up to the fun overhanging hand crack. Feet are always there and hands are bomber, but challenging for the novice crack climber no doubt. Rap the tree to the left. Decent morning shade in April.
Brad Stewart & I did the FA on this route on 2-25-86, according to an old topo. I told Brad about the route - he drew the short straw and got the lead. He graded it at 5.10b and after looking at the backs of my hands, I couldn't argue. Located about 300 yards north of the Outhouse Wall on the right (east) of the dirt road that leads from Willow Springs to the Red Rock summit. Nick Nordblum subsequently added a second pitch and graded it 5.11b.
