Description 

Located in the Mormon Mountains, the Ballin' Alley is one of a few stellar limestone caves in and around this region offering excellent climbing in a high desert setting. The Crag is shady all day due to its location, with often very windy conditions. Although the routes are few at this time, the secluded location and quality of the lines currently bolted makes for a nice experience.

Getting There 

20 minutes outside of Mesquite on I-15 towards Las Vegas. Pull off at the truck rest area on the right and follow the road parallel to I-15 until it veers off north becoming a dirt road. Take the dirt road in, about 20 minutes down the road, staying left/straight until the road dead ends. Walk up the hill on your left and look for the cairns marking the designated path.

Die Gute Sheisse 5.14a 8b+ 32 X+ 32 E8 7a  NV : The Ballin' Alley
The prize line of the Alley. This line veers off the right edge of the cave, climbing 6o feet or so to a no hands rest. From there follow the final headwall up and left to the anchors. The crux comes past the 8th bolt with a powerful move to a sloper and a difficult sequence through the next two clips....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
