The West Side - Sommerset Boulders 

Traveling west, deeper into Sommerset, one can eventually reach the West side zone.

Here one has a choice of several different clusters each with a number of problems. The best of the three formations in our opinion is the lower west side, home of Broken Promises, a V2 highball straight up the middle of the tiered broken cliff shown in the photo to the right.

From this base one can explore several other boulders around the area.

Plenty to do here, especially in the moderate range.

Broken Promises V2 5+  Nevada : Reno and Carson City : ... : West Side
This big block holds a decent high ball problem on good granite.the crux is pulling on, layback on a matching edge and spring for a decent hold, But from there it's cruiser off the deck with several blind reaches for jugs and a semi harrowing thin slab direct exit if one chooses to skip the crack off right... There's also a cool stemmy left start....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
