A good little limestone sport climbing crag. It is a great option on cold windy days. The wall gets shade early and late. Routes range from 5.8 to 5.12. The area has two sections, an upper wall and the main wall.

Getting There

In case anybody's headed to the Rodeo Wall anytime soon.... lots of bees! Go there when it's cold... not warm.

What guidebook includes route information on Lone Mountain?

Did the legwork myself, aparently Islands in the Sky, by Dan McQuade, Randy Leavitt, and Mick Ryan as well as Las Vegas Limestone, by Roxanna Brock have info.

Found an enormous nest of bees above the 12a on Gun Club's R wall today. Steer clear...

Fun place to visit, but most of the bolts are pretty high, with a possibility of busting your feet, if you slip off before clipping one. Kind of silly if you ask me.
