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.

Shootin' Blanks V4 6B  NV : Reno - Carson City : ... : West Side
Discovery of a shiny bolt 2/3 way up this 12 foot face made us realize we weren't the first to be out in this area, i imagine this went in before pads were cool.This problem requires both power and finesse. Laying back on slaps and slopers, work up n right with friction only to a small but positive knob, from there it gets tricky requiring a short traverse out onto the roof before bringing the feet up left and mantling over.This problem is in a cool spot just down from the big Broken Promises B...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
