Mogul Cliffs Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Mogul cliffs. Probably some ok bouldering around ...
A collection of broken rocks, boulders, and pillars varying from boulders to 50' high. The rock is coarse granite, faces south, and is more worth visiting for its novelty than the quality if it's climbing.
Off of the very west end of W 4th Street, go under highway (I-80) and take a left (westbound).
Take a right on Cliff View Drive, and enter a neighborhood.
The cliffs and rocks become visible quickly.
As the road curves to the right there is a pull out onto a dirt road by the flume.
Several deer trails head up to the rocks.

: Mogul Cliffs
Above the tallest tower on the right is a 40" tall boulder split by two cracks. The left crack is a 5-6" wide bulging off width. Start by climbing through easier ground (5.7) over broken rock to the base of the main crack. Fists, lay backing and strenuous off fists will get you past the buldge. The crack is filled with debris and bird shit. Not a terribly pleasant climb but not bad for working off width skills....[more] Browse More Classics in NV

Saw a large rattlesnake right at the base of the tallest climb today. Scared the crap out of me. Second time I've seen one here. Too bad cause this is a decently neat area for its proximity to reno.

I climbed here once in early spring and encountered three different rattlesnakes around the crag...two at the base and one on a small ledge while I was rappelling!
