Description

Sunny, dusty, hot... horrible conditions for climbing which makes this a premier climbing destination. It has a few less routes than nearby Red Rock, but the rock type is far more varied and tends to be a mix of wood, plastic, steel, and some odd crusty conglomerate that's hard to identify.

What Black Rock City lacks in volume and height of routes it makes up for in variation and availability. Is that a fiery spaceship that crash-landed on the playa? Yes, but it also happens to be a handful of stout bouldering problems. Wanna do a wicked V2 campus up the backside of a wild boar at 2AM, knock yourself out.

Another upside is the unlimited amount of free chalk.

In the spirit of Burning Man and in line with the principles of Communal Effort and Participation, this is a page for all of us to improve together. Share your stories, your pictures, your climbs, your beta... this is your page, make it so! Relive that sunrise climb atop some art in deep playa with that random stranger who became your friend. Share with us that structure that had "climb me" written all over it while you weathered a dust storm! It doesn't need to be a V9 highball to make it in, in fact a V0 with a highball is just as valid (though, in the default world, please don't drink and climb).

Getting There

Nevada 34 to Gate Road. Get out at the greeter's station, bang a gong, roll in the dust, then head out on Moe's Road.
