Everyone knows about the sport climbing mecca outside of Mesquite known as The Cathedral, but relatively little is known about The Mormon Mountains which are roughly the same distance from Mesquite and contain some of the awesomest limestone in the US. Perhaps the problem is the relatively little development that has taken place, or the hour+ steep hike to get to the better climbing, but this area has so much potential it is mind blowing.
From Mesquite take I-15 south for a little over 10 miles until you reach the first truck parking exit. Exit here, then take the road at the back of the truck parking and parallels the freeway heading west. After a short distance the road turns north and turns to dirt. Follow this dirt road for about 13 miles until you are in the heart of the Mormon Mountains.
