Red Rocks Canyon, NV


This will be a week of fun where we will be climbing at various locations at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.  The climbs will be a mix of sport and Trad, Single, and Multipitch.  The type of climbs will depend on the skill level and goals of the participants   My expectations are do a bunch of single pitch sport climbs the first few days and then scatter in a couple of days of multi-pitch and Trad after we are accustomed to the rock.
Come for the whole 10 days or any part of it.


About the Park

Red Rock Canyon was designated as Nevada's first National Conservation Area.  Red Rock Canyon is located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip on Charleston Boulevard/State Route 159.  The area is visited by more than two million people each year.  In marked contrast to a town geared to entertainment and gaming, Red Rock offers enticements of a different nature including a 13-mile scenic drive, miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, picnic areas, nature observing and visitor center with indoor and outdoor exhibits as well as a bookstore.

Getting There:

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is located just outside of Las Vegas, making it easily accessible for climbers.  If you are planning on driving it takes around 16 hours to drive from Salem to Red Rock Canyon.  Another option is to fly.  There are many flights to Las Vegas from Portland and Eugene.  The current plan is for Greg to drive down early in an RV.  He will also have a car available to pick people up at the airport if necessary.  The car is a compact has limited trunk space but can seat up to five.
