IS this that boulder that is visible from the road up on the ridge above the east entrance to sommerset? Def a cool stone, there are a couple routes posted, if its the same one...

No this is right behind the traffic jam traverse boulder but both are fun. This boulder has some chipping away at the crack to create some better footholds. This is a cool spot, I've never run into other climbers in Sommerset. And thanks! I'm surprised not to many people from Reno take advantage of these convenient boulders.

Cool! I hope it wasnt climbers who chipped it, that wouldnt be cool. An interesting note about this block, if this is where I think it is there is a chunk on the other side of this that fell off a couple years back during an earthquake. Its on the ground now next to the boulder, but we'd been climbing up here the day before, was nuts to see it a few days later...
