Description

A small valley with a dry creek bed running through the middle of it, Half the climbs are north facing making for shady climbing. The area is very secluded, and requires serious bushwhacking in order to reach. Be prepared for a long hike through: dirt roads, washed out rock roads, tall grass, ticks, and snakes. The Boulders out here are.....strange to say in the least. There are some big tall chossy wonders, which crumble in your hands, and then lava rock with random bits of granite poking out of it. It looks chossy, but is oddly dependable and solid. A few pure granite boulders dot the ridge line in this area. Perfect gems of granite boulders sprinkled over lava rock/granite mutants, and some chossy wonders. It was fun to discover and explore, but I'm not even sure it's worth the hike to get out to here. There is some good high ball bouldering up there, but holy crap you'll be so tired by the time you get up there.

Getting There

FYI: I'm just simply copy pasting most of The Mini Boulders area directions, with a few updates and adjustments for the final approach. From the intersection of South McCarran Blvd and Lakeside Drive, follow Lakeside Drive past windy hill until you reach a street Called Lone Tree Lane. Lone Tree Lane is right before the road turns into Holcomb Ranch Lane and is right before the huge bends in the road. Follow Lone Tree Lane and take a left on Bellhaven Road. From Bellhaven Road, take a left on Schellbourne Road. Follow Schellbourne Road for a few hundred feet 'til it turns into a dirt road. This dirt road leads up to the entrance to some mansion that's been built up there. The mansion entrance is to the right, the off road trail to the Mini Boulders will be on the left. BE WARNED: this road is severely washed out from beginning to end. Some parts are easier to navigate than others, but bring a vehicle that can handle serious off-roading. Follow this road for a few miles until it takes a sharp turn left and drops into a small ravine. This ravine area is a popular shooting area and you can easily see shells littering the ground. From this spot the road splits into 2 possible roads. The first one on the far right ascends a steep hill (do not take) and the second one goes to the left/straight. Immediately after this split there is a right turn which leads up and around a hill. Take this road and follow it up a steep hill until you surpass the summit. Then, stay on this road and cruise for about a half mile, until there is a fork in the road. The dirt road to the left will lead to The Mini Boulders Area, The ludicrously washed out rock road to the right will lead further into the mountains towards The Mega Boulders. Follow this rock road for 3/4 of a mile until you reach another fork in an open field. The left road will lead to the Hidden In Plain Sight Boulder, The right fork will head up the hill and begin drifting to the right.  Follow this faded road until it goes too far right.  You're trying to get to the obvious ravine with boulders popping out of it, that you should see to the North West.  Pretty much straight through the middle of the last fork in the road. Bush whack up into this ravine.  As you hike further into the ravine, You'll find more and more boulders.
