Hey everyone,

Out of work climber here. Considering moving back to Las Vegas if I can find some rigging work or something of the like. What exactly is involved in being able to find work of this sort, what are the gigs usually like (pay and duration), etc?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I have family back in Vegas and lived there before moving to Reno.

Best,

Weston

after the hard stuff, into cruiser hands.

probably start by getting a certification like SPRAT. I think my tech 1 cost me $400 and a week of time

Thanks for the info, Nick.

Xavier, it would be great to move back. At this point if I can land work that pays well and eventually land a gig at the state/county/city down there, I would be amped. Rigging would be great work I feel and once I land a career job a nice extra source of revenue. Plus...there is just something about Red Rock I am drawn back to constantly, those canyons have an aura of adventure surrounding them that I am just drawn to. Hopefully I can land something down there! While I love Reno, the job opportunities up here are limited.

IRATA or SPRAT aren't going to do a single thing to get you a rigging gig in Vegas.

With no experience try to get a job as a stagehand first.

Rhino or Desert Entertainment would be good first phone calls.

Pay attention, work hard, see where that takes you.

Rhino is a solid company-- I worked for them in Denver for a while. In my experience they definitely recognize hard workers and give them work when it's available.
