Hey all!

A friend and I are headed to Vegas for work conferences ( exercise physiology/ emergency medicine). We are planning to climb the weekend of March 16-17th. We are looking to get on some sport routes, anything from 5.7-5.10b/c. We will have our own gear- but we sure could use a little beta about the best place to go. Also, if anyone was heading out that weekend- we would love to join some folks that know the area. Let me know what ya think. Thanks!!

Black corridor would have the most climbs, might be cold as its mostly shady but out of the wind at least. Panty Wall has some nice easier ones and is sunny. Magic Bus I think has some decent ones and also in the sun. EricSchmidt

anything at the first or second pullout is fair game. If you're looking for multipitch, brownstone wall is pretty popular if you like that kind of thing. dark corridor is good if it's going to be hot. majic school bus has some fun moderates too.

Go to the red rocks destination link, then look on the left tab, 'Best routes for me in this area'. enter in what you're looking for and viola, lots to choose from. Or, click on the link below.

You could split your days up and visit first and second pullouts. My suggestion would be:

Day 1 - Go to hamlet and/or panty wall
do a variety of 5.7-5.9 climbing. On the lower tier of hamlet to the left of the TR stuff is a wall called j wall
it has a coule 5.10- . After on your way out you can head to two different locations dog wall
you can do a 5.10a and 5.10b and at tiger stripe you can do two 5.10b.

Day 2 - Go to hunter s thompson dome do some 5.8-5.10c climbing and then you have a few options 1. Black Corridor you will get in a lot of climbing at the grade your looking for. 2. Stone wall you can climb some more 5.10s in your range. 3. Meet up wall 5.7-5.10a climbing.

Options 1-3 depending on how crowded they are. If you choose option 3 I would head there first (its a little out of the way) and then hit the other places on way out. Magic bus is cool spot to visit too I find it to be a little out of the way.

Another option for Day 2 would be go to the Gallery variety of climbing in your range and then from there go to wall of confusion for 5.10b and 5.10c.

You can mix up the days however that is just my suggestion. Good luck!

Big Bad Wolf is a good sport muli pitch, and you don't have to drive into the park.

My Husband and I are currently climbing in Red Rocks. A small hiccup that we have run into is that there are some discrepancies in the info that the guide books give. Like approaches and distances. Also Mountain Project has some info that the books don't have and the books have info Mountain Project doesn't. It is a good idea to have both. The climbing shop in town on 8221s Charleston St. is a fantastic shop and the guys there are really nice an have tons of info if you have any questions. Also we aren't used to climbing sandstone (it freaks us out a little, soooo soft!!) so we have found some limestone areas to play around in. We are hitting up Water World today so I will get back to you with info on that. It is very close to town. I am from Asheville and miss NC so much. I hope you have a fantastic trip out here, and give NC a hug for me! kmaxson
