Ed Strang on Bikini Kill
Limestone bouldering cave near Las Vegas. Basically a grafitti and broken glass covered chossy limestone cave that was transformed into a powerful gymnastic bouldering spot. Maybe not so pretty to look at, but amazing problems and movement. Problems range from v3 to hard v13. Please don't visit if you are offended by reinforced or altered rock, this won't be the place for you. If you just want to climb hard and powerful problems, then you are in luck. A dead body was found here also.
Not for the squeamish.
A couple miles outside Las Vegas NM.
"Drive on NM 65 (aka Hot Springs Rd.) toward Montezuma, pass the United World College and the hot springs. Start going up the hill on NM 65 (aka FR 263). At this point you are headed northwest of the springs. Drive for about 8-10 minutes once you pass the hot springs. It will be on your right side in a left bend in the road. There will be two trees that have white crosses painted on them. Park off the road and walk up the trail." [I added the directions from a post on rockclimbing.com
. There is a map too, on that page. I haven't gone so I can't vouch for their accuracy. -admin (GP)]

Thanks for the info on route names. We've been bouldering here for a number of years, but never new the names.
