Oak Creek "Peak" in Red Rock (near Vegas).

is one of the "peaks" in Red Rock that is really just a neat hike, as
the actual prominence of the "peak" is about 65' (it's a sandstone
prominence that abuts the higher limestone thrust to the west). But it
sure looks like a peak as you approach from the east! The southern
route is class 3, minor class 4, mainly because the rock is
so polished and you may have to ponder a bit to get past the dryfalls.
The descent off the N side is class 2/3, but again you must watch the
routes around dryfalls. There is a sustained class 4 route (not shown)
up the east ridge.
