Good news, tons of volcanics, bad news all choss.I scoped a lot out 20+ years ago and spent 2 weeks in the area this fall. You might want to find some boaters for reports on the river canyons to the north.

Note: did not revisit the area near the town of jarbidge this fall but do not remember seeing anything great years ago when I was actively exploring northern nv for routes.

Stick to the rubies.....

Rock Climbing Photo: Approach to Washington Column
I took these photos Sept of last year on the dirt road near Jarbidge. A 5 min stroll uphill gets you to the base. There was a lot of loose rock on the exterior but it appears it might clean up nicely. I didn't see any established routes. All the other rock I saw in the area was choss.

Upon closer inspection, this rock looked like it would clean up well. I was there just last weekend and looked up close both from bottom and the top. That said, It would take some cleaning with a crowbar and a Bosch. I found the rock very similar to some of the stuff north of Reno on 395. It's really remote, but I think it could be interesting and plan to make a recon trip there at some point. The lack of scree, evident rock fall and the hardness and good bonding of the exposed rock on top all pointed to great climbing potential.
