Description 

Dessert rock. Not alot here, but a few existing sport climbs and some potential for a few boulder problems.

Getting There 

From South Reno take 395 South to the intersection with 341 and turn left (East) on 341 toward the base of Geiger Grade, Go right through the immediate round about and 1/2 a mile further turn right at the stop light for Toll RD, Follow Toll RD for a couple miles past all of the suburban neighborhoods until the road turns to broken pavement and dirt, From here you continue on Toll RD for another 1 1/2 miles staying straight past a private property sign (this is a rural neighborhood however Toll RD is a public road to my knowledge, common sense and respect apply), Owl Rock will come into sight ahead and on your right, If you have 4x4 you can drive nearly right to the base...

Climbing Season

just went out to OWL ROCK today , lots to do there in bouldering mode . next time out I,ll bring a rope, harness, gear, etc. found a trail that went around to the right side down low then once around the backside headed up to the top , a few seperate boulders that are high enough down lower that look like fun too.
