I have a week off around thanksgiving and I was thinking of heading to red rocks. How cold does it get? I figure it cant be any worse than climbing in new england in november. haha

Assumign dress warmly and will be fine?

Or is it just not worth it?

Any advice would be helpful!

November in Red Rock is usually great, though it can get a bit chilly at night.

Can be windy, cold in the shade. JTree is also a nice destination as well. divnamite

Generally speaking, November is awesome here. If temps are cold, seek the sun, if temps are warm, seek the shade. Pretty simple once you get the hang of it... Weston L

Turns out this depends greatly on the actual weather. Not trying to be a douche. Seriously. It does. JMo

The cold won't shut you down. Rain can, but usually just a few days, and the odds are in your favor! JMo

Weather aside the days are short, dark at 5-5:30, and the loop road closes at 5:30. Dave Curry
