Never been to Red Rock but thinking of heading out there this weekend. The forecast Saturday says 20% chance rain. Any locals have advice on what they think the actual chance of rain is at Red Rock? Do You think we will get rained out? Halley13

Theres always a better chance of rain in the mountains than the city. Unless theres some seriously dark clouds hovering overhead though, Id still go climbing, and will be headin out saturday morning unless prior rain. Just stay off high committment routes without fixed anchors in case it does rain. If it rains before you hit the rocks, dont climb.

Main point, dont wait on the weather around here. You can always leave if it gets hectic. Gettin rained out is better than not goin at all IMO, but if your driving from utah that might be a different story.

Since she (you) are from SLC, I'd pick a different weekend. There are so many nice ones here; it doesn't seem worth it to drive for one that might be crappy. And if it does rain on friday/saturday, the 'smart' thing wouild be to stay off the rock on Sunday. Brian Prince

It's going to be windy, cold, and most likely rainy. Might want to skip Red Rock this weekend. Justin.Trayford
