the Church Ridge Boulders

As one enters Reno from the west on I-80, there is a obvious set of Boulders sitting on the ridge to your left above a church, these are the Church Ridge Boulders.

There are two distinct clusters, one is right on the ridge; the other is set back a ways. The back cluster is where you'll find the Twin Cracks and some other unlisted stuff. There's cool exploring to be had and the rock is of very high quality; some of the best in fact of the entire sommerset zone. Expect bullet tan granite with few feet to be had...

There is an acquaduct you must cross to access this area from the church, if its running there is a way around about a quarter mile to the west; or you can come in from the other side but its a good half hr walk.

Be cautious of Snakes and hostile locals. we've gotten some grief over the years from old schoolers who used to go up here before Sommerset, or the Church, ever existed. But this is public land, and they cannot kick you off. But either way... be discreet, and leave no trace. As long as you're respectful, its all good. Same goes for parking at the Church, we've never had a problem so lets keep it that way.

Getting There

Follow west fourth west past the freeway entrance, go under the freeway then park at the church and hike up to the ridge. If there aqueduct is running, you gotta walk around but its a nice walk...
