Mount Potasi has at least a few different areas for sport climbing. The most prominent is the Clear Light Cave. There is also the Buena Vista wall, and maybe more by now. This area is relatively secluded and not very populated. The limestone is of relatively good quality. There are a plethora of routes from at least 5.10 to 5.14, with potential for harder routes.

Getting There 

Drive west on HWY 160 from Las Vegas; at about 8.2 miles west from the 159/160 junction (to Red Rock), take a left onto a gravel road. This road leads to the other areas on the West-Side. Comedy Crag is immediately on your left.
