Mount Wilson is a centerpiece of Red Rock climbing. The feature is a true mountain with many buttresses, walls, and summits. When the early morning sun paints the mountains with its rays, it’s hard to imagine a more beautiful piece of rock. Mount Wilson is known specifically for the fact that it harbors some of the longest and most complex climbs in the canyon. The two routes featured here are both Grade V climbs if an individual elects to climb to the summit, making high-mountain bivies common. This in itself is a special treat. The lights of Las Vegas from a ledge high on Mount Wilson are truly something to behold.
