Not in the Sierra!

edit: Not the Needles, even though there is some Needles-quality rock here (to be fair there's also some sugary-junk type rock here as well...).

In the western US - and here's some other hints:
- there's been climbing here for decades
- no info can be found online about this place
- it's public land, not in Wilderness, and you get cell phone reception at the crag
- and the big hint: there are no significant towns or cities anywhere near here

So, it's a place that nobody knows about unless you already know about it? Did Cortez leave a cursed treasure there? Seriously! Where is this place? Christian "crisco" Burrell

Thousand plus foot granite in the middle of nowhere - not Idaho or Arizona either...

Another hint - it's a few hours drive from here:

Rob's got the right idea (not the correct range name but I think that's what he means), and this is holding people up - Wild Granites, Nevada Greg Barnes

Greg, this is an area, not a climb. . . . BTW, I know this place, and that is all that I'm saying. Umph!
