Description 

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."

Getting There 

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."

Natural Selection V5

Iron Cross V5 6C  NV : Keyhole Canyon Bouldering
Natural Selection climbs the unusually smooth wall on the north side of the canyon proper. The wall is split by two thin cracks; one moving up, right and back left and another moving left, right and left again- this is the line of Natural Selection. Thin crack climbing with glassy feet make this tall problem a formidable challenge. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
