I have been driving back and forth to Gardnerville from Sacramento the last couple days for work and I keep staring at the Granite buttress/spire formations that are on the side of the mountains just west of Gardnerville and just a bit south of Kingsbury Grade where it hits foothill rd.
The rock looks fairly clean and approachable (at least it does from the highway).
Does anybody know if there is established climbs up there???
on your next trip over from Sac, turn down Rt 89 when you get to Tahoe (at Myers) and take a gander at Woodfords Canyon. Not only the scenic route, but probably a faster way to Gvile, and there IS climbing in Woodfords.
edit: and still plenty of room for productive exploring
Tye, if your talking about a cirque or bowl just S of Kingsbury yes theres a few worthwhile short things, but most is grainy there. A little further south at the flanks of Jobs peak are granite formations some good some not. But the good is good!- steep approaches though. Theres been little exploration of either, and only a few things done that i am aware of.
