Description 

Located in the Mormon Mountains, the Ballin' Alley is one of a few stellar limestone caves in and around this region offering excellent climbing in a high desert setting. The Crag is shady all day due to its location, with often very windy conditions. Although the routes are few at this time, the secluded location and quality of the lines currently bolted makes for a nice experience.


Getting There 

20 minutes outside of Mesquite on I-15 towards Las Vegas. Pull off at the truck rest area on the right and follow the road parallel to I-15 until it veers off north becoming a dirt road. Take the dirt road in, about 20 minutes down the road, staying left/straight until the road dead ends. Walk up the hill on your left and look for the cairns marking the designated path.

The 11/12 Split 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  NV : The Ballin' Alley
Height dependent beta in some sections of this route dictated a bit of a slash grade with this one. Steeper than it looks (per usual), the line follows tiered roof sections up and right. No obvious crux really, just sustained overhanging climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
