The Middle Zone - CLOSED TO CLIMBING :(

Its a bummer to say that this area, for all intents, has been closed off to climbing. A new gate has recently gone up and its likely permanent. there are also signs up warning of parked cars being impounded and trespassers being arrested. Sadly Reno has lost it's best granite bouldering zone and while there are other areas within Sommerset that are still open; none were quite as cool as the Middle zone.

Lame.

It's in the middle zone that most of the actions happens. Here you'll find generally feet-less, tan granite erratics, An easy approach and quality stone has made this area the default sector for climbing at Sommerset. While most of the plumbs have been picked, a few harder lines still wait to be sent.

Small pads are all you really need as nothing is too highball here, but the movement is good and the grainy-ness continues to diminish as the lines see more ascents.

good in the evenings, try to obey the parking signs.
