Description 

Remote area with good cell phone reception. Weathered Granite. Generally south west facing. Slab to sustained overhangs. Sport bolted. No surface water. Good climbing in fall, winter and spring.

Getting There 

You need a 4 wheel drive, high clearance vehicle to access these areas. You will encounter some soft sand patches and washouts depending upon when the roads were last graded.


From HWY 6 (95) at 0.1 miles east of mile marker 32 turn southeast onto a graded dirt road. You'll see power lines to your right which cross your road about half way across the playa. There are intersections with your road at 3.8 and 4.0 miles from the turnoff. Go straight at both of these.

At 8.1 miles a single lane road makes a soft left. That road crosses the basin wash and takes you to the main areas.

Continuing on the main road, a right turn at 8.7 miles takes you to the Locatelli/Harrison routes.

To get to the Troll and the Molar continue on the main road and turn left at the intersection at 9.3 miles. Eventually this road enters and follows the wash. Continue on until 12.2 miles and veer left onto a 2 track road. At 13.2 miles turn right to the Troll or go straight ahead to the Molar.
