Description 

A good little limestone sport climbing crag. It is a great option on cold windy days. The wall gets shade early and late. Routes range from 5.8 to 5.12. The area has two sections, an upper wall and the main wall.

Getting There 

Head to the corner of Alexander and Jensen. There is a city park on Jensen just North of the mtn. Park there or in the dirt at the base of Lone Mountain on its east side. Fallow the trail up to a small cave continue around to another large cave like recess. This is the main wall. The upper wall is up another 200'.

Unnamed 5.10, follows the crack just right of the dangling woman in the photo.

Unnamed 5.10 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  NV : Lone Mountain : ... : Urban Crag
This was my favorite route at the crag. It has some length and variety. Start out in a section of opposing corners with some stemming, climb left along an intermittent crack for a while, then pull a bulge on sharp holds to head for the anchors.

What guidebook includes route information on Lone Mountain?

Did the legwork myself, aparently Islands in the Sky, by Dan McQuade, Randy Leavitt, and Mick Ryan as well as Las Vegas Limestone, by Roxanna Brock have info.
