There are several good climbing areas in the Reno - Carson City area.
From points east, Interstate 80 is best. From Northern and Central California, either Interstate 80 or Highway 50 will do. Interstate 80 will take you past Donner Summit. If you come by way of I80, take Highway 395 south to Carson City. Highway 50 will take you past Lover's Leap, through South Tahoe and into Carson City.
From Southern California, either take Interstate 5 to Highway 50 or Interstate 80. Alternatively, coming up Highway 395 will take you through Bishop and along the Eastern Sierra.
From Las Vegas, take Highway 95 North. Be careful in Beatty, Goldfield and Tonopah (and other small towns along the way), the police there are very diligent in enforcing the speed limits.
The Reno/Tahoe airport is the only place where the major airlines fly into. It is very easy to get in and out of.
There are numerous hotels, motels and camping areas in the Reno/Carson City area.

This beautiful proud line leads up the steep and desperate overhanging arete. A powerful technical crux down low leads to a delicate finish that is no gimme. This boulder problem is one of the most unique and beautiful lines I have ever seen or attempted. The arete just has enough holds to get you to the top, but finding the sequence through the holds requires some out of the box thinking and results in a very rewarding ascent. Definitely one of the classic boulder problems in the tahoe area....[more] Browse More Classics in NV
