Deathclaws at Quarry Junction?

Hi guys. How can I get past the annoying Deathclaws near the entrance of the Junction? I always die, they're too tough, they detect me even if I use Stealth Boys. I need to finish the Oh My Papa Quest for the NCR. Any tips? Thanks. :)

I'm already level 23 and these, I don't know what to call them, adult Deathclaws or something, are still kicking my ass no matter what I do. Boone is able to kill 2-3 before they get close, but even with me and Rex combined, it doesn't stop them since 4 or 5 come at once.. Should I upgrade my arsenal or just fail the quest? I'm really getting annoyed by these guys.

What I would do is have Boone or Lily with you and also have Rex. Then you would want to have some unique weapons with you like the mini-gun and a powerful shotgun. And make sure you have stimpacks and super stimpacks with you as well as doctor bags.

If you're trying to go straight to Vegas that way, you're going the wrong way. The game punishes you for trying to go places underleveled and indeed, going anywhere there are deathclaws while under level 20 is suicidal. The same goes for the final boss, rushing through the game you'll find yourself either very well perforated by .50 caliber bullets or helpless on the ground as a guy continuously beats on your unconscious body with a sword as large as he is.

...But if you absolutely insist, you *CAN* go north to Vegas if you're really careful. Talk to NPCs until you get a map marker for the NCR Correctional Facility. Head there, then follow a path directly east of it into Hidden Valley. Once you're there, start heading northeast and stay on the rocks, stay crouched unless you see [DANGER] displayed. You should run into a friendly super mutant and find the map marker Neil's Shack. Continue northward, less east. When you come to the edge of the rocks, don't get down from them. Check for deathclaws and head further east until you can't see any more, you may get the map marker for Black Mountain added. At that point, just head north and you shouldn't run into anything more danagerous than fire ants.

Or are you hunting deathclaws? Be level 20+, keep as much distance as possible from them, use a quiet scoped weapon(Sniper Rifle with suppressor mod or similar) with a decently high amount of power(minigun with AP rounds also works well), bring a lot of drugs like Psycho or Steady, and keep companions far far away because they'll die/be knocked out very fast unless you're overprepared. Companions that specialize in melee like Lily and Rex will die the fastest if you haven't given them good weapons, so instead you should use companions like Arcade, Boone, and Raul that are good with some kind of ranged weapons. Last but not least, don't ever think you're equipped well enough until you've wiped out all of them. Deathclaws are some of the strongest enemies in the game and aren't to be underestimated.

It is highly recommended to be at lv 20 or higher to fight deathclaws, their perception skill is ridiculously high thus they can still detect you even if you are using a stealth boy.
