*The Egg is another place that's good for an evening session, but doesn't have a ton a stuff. The view is nice and their is
rarely anyone there. Their is also a lot of rock on the hills around it, but to date my explorations have yielded little. If its
windy this is not the place to be.
Directions: From the I-580 (US 395) head to the south end of Washoe Valley and take the Eastlake Blvd Exit. From the exit
get on the east side of the freeway if your not there already and head south on SR 428. Then turn right on Hobart Road and
the first left on Lakeview Road and the second left on Buckskin Road (I don't think their is a street sign), The road heads up
the hill and ends at a gated dirt road. Park here and follow that dirt road up then take the left to the hill top that overlooks
Washoe valley. The dirt road ends there. This is also the lakeview slab climbing area.
10. V0 An un remarkable slab that is also the
6. * V0R Walk up the slopey rail. Their are
good crimps it you can find them.
5. **? V1 SDS on low right facing flake, move
right to right facing crack and up to crimps.
4. ? V?R An arete with an opposing right hand
to what looks like a crimp and the arete all
over a terrible landing.
3. ***? V3R Easily the best line on the
boulder the landing forces you up a narrow
crimpy shoot with a committing mantle move
2. ? V1/2?X Stand start on the rock work left
into #3. As if the landing wasn't scary enough
pulling off the giant hollow sounding guillotine
like rock above you is a bit daunting. I did this
one to do it, I don't remember it being
particularly hard but I didn't write down the
grade and I have no desire to repeat it.
1. ?? V1/2?X Well if gingerly using the death
flake wasn't crazy enough for you why not get
all the way under it an layback on it then head
1a. ? V1/2?X Another run up the death flake
though this one seems a lot more survivable
since you might be able to push the stone
away from you. Work up the right side of the
flake. I can't remember if I went up on the
face or out right on the horizontal crack. It
wasn't very memorable or very hard.
8. ** V3 Better than Golf Match hands
on a sidepull on the arete and take the
arete over the bulge and up the slab.
9. V? A Bump too Far SDS in a crack
and move up it, then out right to a right
hand gaston then bump for the slopey
bulge on the arete and up.
