A good little limestone sport climbing crag. It is a great option on cold windy days. The wall gets shade early and late. Routes range from 5.8 to 5.12. The area has two sections, an upper wall and the main wall.

Getting There 

Park at Lone Mountain Discovery Park, on Jensen north of Alexander.

Follow the trail up to a small cave continue around to another large cave like recess. This is Urban Crag.

Cheap Beer Crag is up another 200'.

This was my favorite route at the crag. It has some length and variety. Start out in a section of opposing corners with some stemming, climb left along an intermittent crack for a while, then pull a bulge on sharp holds to head for the anchors. Islands in the Sky rates this 5.10, the older Brock Vegas Limestone book rated it 5.10a, but I felt it was easier than any of the other 5.10 routes at the crag.Please don't TR directly through the open cold shuts, use your own equipment so they don't w...[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada

In case anybody's headed to the Rodeo Wall anytime soon.... lots of bees! Go there when it's cold... not warm.

What guidebook includes route information on Lone Mountain?

Did the legwork myself, aparently Islands in the Sky, by Dan McQuade, Randy Leavitt, and Mick Ryan as well as Las Vegas Limestone, by Roxanna Brock have info.

Found an enormous nest of bees above the 12a on Gun Club's R wall today. Steer clear...
