Pot Belly Boulders

Description 

This area north of the main Pig Rock/Little Shop of Horrors area is a beautiful boulder field from afar. Eighty-five percent of these rock formations are choss, but within the crumbling rock are a handful of quick, fun lines.

It may not be worth it to visit the area solely to boulder, but the area is a great place for sport climbers who need a break from the tough routes at Little Shop of Horrors.

The Pig Rock area is mostly secluded with very few climbers willing to drive there due to the hot weather and the difficulty of the sport routes. Since the release of the new North Lake Tahoe Local's Guide book, more climbers are venturing to the area and weekends can see a half-dozen parties in a day. The small area that contains Pig Rock and Little Shop of Horrors seems crowded even with three groups in the area.

Some of the established routes are new and have only been climbed a few times. Cleaning and more laps are still necessary.


Getting There 

Pot Belly Boulders are located approximately 150 meters north of Pig Rock and Little Shop of Horrors. Walk along the gravel/beach road to the boulder field. Lazy climbers can drive to the boulders. There is only enough space for two cars to be parked at the boulders.

Once in the boulder field, most of the boulders are within a 60 second walk of the road.

Start low on the left side of the undercling/sidepull. Work your way along the underclings and follow the line towards the top out. Crux is from the undercling to the top out. Finish with an easy mantle.This rock is good quality, but still needs to be climbed on and minimal cleaning before it becomes excellent. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
