The West Side - Sommerset Boulders 

Traveling west, deeper into Sommerset, one can eventually reach the West side zone.

Here one has a choice of several different clusters each with a number of problems. The best of the three formations in our opinion is the lower west side, home of Broken Promises, a V2 highball straight up the middle of the tiered broken cliff shown in the photo to the right.

From this base one can explore several other boulders around the area.

Plenty to do here, especially in the moderate range.

Roberto is movin like Bernie! The wish-it-was 2k starting dihedral is in the bottom right. He still has to navigate the upper crux; big holds but off balance and airy. 321 just for fun!

Movin Like Bernie 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b V-easy 3  NV : Reno - Carson City : ... : West Side
Start in the beautiful corner on the left side of the main face. Imagine how awesome it would be if the dihedral with hand crack went on for 2000ft. Enjoy a variety of methods of ascent to pull over the first small bulge (you can also traverse right into Broken Promises), then work up the second pedestal corner within a beautiful orange corner with the bird-poo sharp edge and tricky high smear with the foot. Mantle onto the pedestal and once you are standing on it, tilt ya head back like a nose ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
