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."

LipTraverse V3 6A  NV : Keyhole Canyon : Keyhole Canyon Bouldering
This lip traverse climbs the obvious table-like boulder about 25 yards south of the waterfall. Crouch start and heel hook your way right to the sharp arete at the end of the boulder. Be conscious of the boulder behind you if you fail to press out the mantle. Good movement on good rock with a fun top out make this good practice for harder lip problems like The Alexisizer at Kraft and Mr. Moran in Gateway Canyon. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
