Welcome

Mention the state of Nevada and outsiders think of Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, deserts, UFO sightings, etc., but for the rock climber it's Red Rock (in Southern Nevada).

Red Rock is one of the standout destination climbing venues in North America, especially during the cooler months of the year. During the summer it's often too hot for all but hardy locals. Several thousand routes from classic moderate multi-pitch routes like Cat in the Hat, 20-pitch big-wall outings, and difficult sport routes at The Gallery.

Oh, and then there is Las Vegas for when the campground gets too cold and windy in the early evening.

If you haven't been to Red Rock yet, make this the one trip you do this year.
