Tried to bag this peak the easy way with my wife via Mountain Springs, but the scrambling shortly after the transition from limestone to sandstone ended up being rowdier than predicted, so we turned back. I would like to get back here one day and knock this one off, I know I could.

Matthew Holliman

Fun loop through and around Black Velvet Canyon, tagging The Monument first, then over Hidden Pk to this, back down the use trail to the cars. After getting the scoop on Vegas area beta from cp0915, headed over to Lone Mtn, then Capriotti's for dinner, then up to Frenchman Mtn to try and work off some of that cheese steak... very enjoyable day.

Prince Of Darkness Thanksgiving Wknd, 2009. Very fun route! Not as monotonous as some online reports suggested IMHO. We had a great time.

The Gobbler March 13, 2009. I led the even pitch; Shirley did 1 & 3. Following P3, I thought it was as hard as one of the classic Smith 10b faces... Another gem in a chestful of treasures that BV wall is yessir! TR here.

Dream Of Wild Turkeys Feb. 21 2009. Swapped leads with Shirley. Really VERY enjoyable climbing! Canyon was empty all day...well, 'cept for 2 dudes doing major route cleaning (FA??) upcanyon from Epi. Cloudy February day but windless. TR here.

Sour Mash Nov. 2007. Swapped leads with Shirley. Struggled (hung & cried...no kidding-real f..ing tears!) a lot on my 10a pitch (#6 per Supertopo) - I need to climb more faces. Shirley led our favorite pitch of the route (#4 per ST) - great 5.9 face/crack.

Overhanging Hangover Nov. 2007. Think this was the best "short" route we've done in RR (better than 1st 4P's of Dark Shadows IMHO). Again, Shirley led the 1st (crux IMHO) pitch. GREAT mix of face & crack climbing.

Wholesome Fullback Nov. 2007. Sweet short route & I was thankful that Shirley led the first (crux) pitch. Gave me a hard time even on TR (read "I fell"). P2 was easy but fun.

Misunderstanding Jan. 2007. Sweet short route. Very nice. Sneaked it in one evening after Shirley's conference.

Epinephrine May 29, 2005. Cool route. Quite long. "Exposure feel" less than on Crimson Chrysalis IMHO.

Refried Brains (4 pitch "version"), May 27, 2005. Cool route w. hard (for the grade IMHO) crux near top of P3. Some shaky bolts on P4 but good enough.

Epinephrine (attempt), May 22, 2005. Just didn't work out. Bailed atop pitch 4.

Sand Felipe, May 21, 2005. Damn....someone went postal with the drill on this one!!!

Frogland, March 13, 2004. My wife and I climbed this fun route on a warm, mid-March day. The route is easy for a 5.8 - the book (T. Swain) rating of 5.8- is probably more appropriate than the Supertopo rating of 5.8. Lots of fun. Nice, easy descent. Pitch 5 (chockstone pitch) was the highlight of the climb; P2 lieback was also enjoyable.
