DescriptionPolished, pocketed, crimps, huecos. Desert, volcanic rock. Potential for more development. Developed back in the early 1990's by Jim Arnold and Ron Anderson. Good winter climbing.
Getting ThereFrom the intersection of 395 and 50 South (Spooner)
1. Head north on S Carson St/US-395 toward Reno 0.5 mi
2. Turn right at E Clearview Dr 1.7 mi
You will come to a 90 degree right hand turn in the road. Instead, take a left onto the dirt road. Follow this road for 300' and park in the turn around.
I have included the gps coordinates for the parking lot on the map on the left. If you click on any of the actual area's the gps for each rock will be listed.
To get to the crags, walk north east on the jeep trail for about 500 yards. You will find yourself at the base of the hill with the crags above you. You should find a walking trail which heads up there.
