Other Zones - Reno Boulders 

In the greater Northwest region of the Washoe Valley there are indeed a few clusters of boulders here and there that are worth exploring.

Rock quality is changeable from boulder to boulder and can go from the tightest polished granite to chossy sand on the same hillside.

There are two areas that could be considered "other zones" but still be included in the Reno Boulders section.

The Primordial Soup Boulder - A sand stone structure to the North.

Verdi Boulders - Fine Granite stones similar to Bliss in Tahoe.

This route is the second line put up at the overhanging Primordial Soup boulder. The rock on this boulder is 100% suspect, don't ever fully trust an edge or you'll crater. This thing is a beast, well overhung edges and a heel lock set you up for a reach to a small sandy sidepull, pushing the right foot into the divot here is the ticket to reach a crucial left hand... once established under the roof grab the bucket and mantle up and over.Delicate stone and balancy moves will test your technique...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
