From Reno head out on I80 West. River rock
is on east side of the highway just before you
hit the Sierra/Nevada County Line. You will
have to flip around at the the Farad Exit (head
back on I80 East) to get to the pull out. It's
the big dirt pull out with the locked gate at the
south end about .6 of a mile from the Sierra
*Riverrock has a few mostly high and easy
problems. A fun place if your looking for an
session of something new, but not too much
Red wave Boulder
1. *!V0 The sloped rocky landing
is less then ideal, but the holds
are good. The cable is off. If
memory serves me their is one
respectable crimp early on and the
rest is a jug haul.
2. *V1/2 Some slopey crack
moves up. Once again the cable is
3. **VB Fun, easy crack like
holds with a good landing. What's
not to like.
4. *V0 Another fun easy crack
that stays easy if to you work out
rightish on your way up.
5. *V0R! High and easy looking if
you ignore how chossy it looks.
The holds held for me, but its one
you'll want to be careful on.
6. **V1R! Not hard, but it gets
high and committing and without
someone to slide you pad around
it probably isn't going to be where
you want it.
7. ***!V3 Great fun. Start with a
good left hand undercling and a
crimpy right hand sidepull and
with either a cool knee bar or
some right hand crimps get a
good left hand sidepull then head
up the juggy feature from their
make a reachy move to a good left
hand sidepull and then grab the
top and out.
