Description 

Located in the Mormon Mountains, the Ballin' Alley is one of a few stellar limestone caves in and around this region offering excellent climbing in a high desert setting. The crag is shady all day due to its location, with often very windy conditions. Although the routes are few at this time, the secluded location and quality of the lines currently bolted makes for a nice experience.

Getting There 

20 minutes outside of Mesquite on I-15 towards Las Vegas. Pull off at the truck rest area on the right and follow the road parallel to I-15 until it veers off north becoming a dirt road. Take the dirt road in, about 20 minutes down the road, staying left/straight until the road dead ends. Walk up the hill on your left and look for the cairns marking the designated path.

Featured Route For The Ballin' Alley

Captain King Pin 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  Nevada : Mormon Mountains : The Ballin' Alley
A short and somewhat powerful route, this is the first climb you will come to in the Alley, about 200 yards before the actual cave. Following the steep and bouldery overhang up the (somewhat) obvious bolt line, the crux comes after the third bolt with a series of big moves to moderate holds, leading to slightly easier climbing to the top. An excellent route that could use a bit more traffic to clear off the excess choss left and right of the bolt line....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
