Las Vegas, Nevada
Only minutes from Las Vegas, Red Rocks is an oasis of wilderness and adventure among the conveniences of the city. The climbing in Red Rocks is world class, and one of the few places in the lower 48 offering grade IV rock climbs.
We really enjoy climbing in Red Rocks Canyon National Conservation Area because you can get so much done and have such a great time doing it. The climbing is on sandstone and quite varied depending on what route you choose to climb. Often desert sandstone is all about climbing cracks, but Red Rocks is different in that the faces are quite featured delivering some very enjoyable climbing.
Red Rocks is home to three climbs featured in the book Fifty Classic Climbs of North America; Epinephrine, Crimson Chrysalis and Prince of Darkness and many more that are of the same caliber. We have spent a ton of time in this area and we are always excited to return.
We can organize full and half day climbs for as many days as your arms and fingertips can handle.
"I remember one time when Todd and I were climbing Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis. I tested a rock by pulling down on it. When I stepped on the rock from a different angle, however, the entire formation came out and I was airborne. My fall wasn't long because the rope had been taut. All I remember saying was 'Well, that's interesting.' Todd said nothing, except later he said, 'That's what a guide and a rope are for.' It was all in a day's work for him. When I think about it, I guess I owe my life to him."
