Keyhole Canyon Bouldering Rock Climbing
From Tom Moulin's recent bouldering guidebook, "Southern Nevada Bouldering": "Generally more featured than Joshua Tree, the water polished granite tends to be of good quality and often slick."
"There are two groups of boulders at Keyhole Canyon: the boulders in and around the mouth of the canyon proper and the Paiute boulders, located 0.5 miles south of the canyon proper."
Also from Tom Moulin's book: "From the interchange of I-515 and I-215 in the southeast corner of Las Vegas head south on I-515 for 8.9 miles to the junction of US93 and US95. Then take US95 south for 15.7 miles. After mile 47 turn left onto a dirt road. The dirt road climbs out of the shallow valley for 2.0 miles then meets a maintenance road below high-tension power lines. Take a right at the second dirt road below the power lines and follow this road for about 1.8 miles until it's possible to see Keyhole Canyon."

This somewhat contrived problem climbs an obvious rounded protrusion on the south side of the canyon about 60 yards down from the smooth waterfall. A crouching start on a good start hold leads to slapping and compression moves straight up and over the bulging feature. The hardest moves are when firing up to the top-out jug. A very fine problem that is a nice change of pace from the Red Rock crimping. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
