About Mecca:

A massive field of welded tuff boulders in Southern/Central Nevada with untold route potential. More information as I am able to come by it.
Nearest town or city: Crystal Springs
Directions: From Jared's Guidebook: "From Vegas head out-of-town North on I-15, about 22 miles out you will need to exit onto Highway 93 North (Great Basin Highway). Stay on 93 until you can no longer take it, you will pass through Alamo and Ash Springs (last food / gas). Highway 93 joins highways 375 and 318, stay on 93 toward Caliente, you will drive past a group of boulders on both sides of the road, don’t bother they’re choss. You will hit whats known as the “7-mile Flat” (flat, straight portion of the highway). After “7-mile Flat” you will crest a hill, look for a sign reading “Pahroc Pass” (around mile marker 65). The turn off is 0.8 miles past the sign, on your left. A cattle guard marks the start of the main road. All parking areas are located off this main road"
