Other Zones - Reno Boulders 

In the greater Northwest region of the Washoe Valley there are indeed a few clusters of boulders here and there that are worth exploring.

Rock quality is changeable from boulder to boulder and can go from the tightest polished granite to chossy sand on the same hillside.

There are two areas that could be considered "other zones" but still be included in the Reno Boulders section.

The Primordial Soup Boulder - A sand stone structure to the North.

Verdi Boulders - Fine Granite stones similar to Bliss in Tahoe.

The Dark Hamster marks the plumb line straight up the middle of this remarkable crag, the primordial soup boulder.This line was the first to go up here, The Dark Hamster sit starts on two good edges, works up and left on overhung sidepulls, a heel lock bumps you up to within long reach of a jug, high step the foot and mantle up to a tiny edge, gently pull the top and slap yourself on the back for beating the Dark Hamster at his own game....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
