I've recently moved to Austin, Nevada for a USFS job for the summer, and I've been itching to get back on rocks (big ones are hard to come by out here it seems). I have been doing a little research with the district geologist and found there to be some fairly large granite domes in the central Toiyabe range. I have read about the "Wild Granites" area, but all directions seem to point me at other places from the area that I have been looking at...

1. Could somebody give me decent directions to the Wild Granites place,

and/or tell me

2. Has anyone ever explored this place/ is it Wild Granites??

Cheers,

Michael

Any place that has an access road named Indian Burial Ground Road has got to be pretty cool!!!

Do some searching and you'll find info. Long approaches, big runouts, big snakes, etc are mostly what you'll hear about. The rock is supposedly solid, and its a beautiful setting. Google is your friend but a lot of guys developing the place are keeping it pretty quiet. It really is out there.

Been there. Like he said, it is pretty quiet out there, and will probably stay that way.

As a lover of lesser known ranges, your question got me searching.

Some adventure to be had, for sure. Have fun out there!
