La Madre- South
About La Madre- South:
La Madre South is the bigger brother of La Madre North. It's also much more friendly to those climbers who cant climb into the .11's and .12's. This area is home to many crags, all with nice moderate routes, but fear not to those who crank hard, each crag usually has some routes for you too! La Madre South is my sport climbing destination of choice for when you're not interested in Mt. Charleston or not strong enough.
Access: Currently, there are several access issues for every crag in this area. A huge master development is going up around Lone Mountain and so creating problems with getting to each crag. Your best bet is to get the Islands in the Sky guidebook and then head out to the area and do your best to get to the crags.
When to climb: For the most part, these are all spring, fall, and winter crags. Water World and Trench Town, though can be very pleasant in the summer, because neither ever receives much direct sunlight.
Classics: Catch a Fire, Fire Starter, One Foundation.

|Directions:||All of these crags have individual approaches as they are spread out across a grid a couple of miles across. For the most part, though, they are near the 215 and Cheyenne.|
