Red Rocks Summer Climbing

With everyone talking about summer climbing, thought I might as well throw my hat in the ring. I climb at Red Rocks the 3rd weekend of every May - I'm not a local. It's always been great that weekend in the canyon especially if you pick walls with some afternoon shade up high. I don't recall it ever being warmer than 85 or so once on the rock. Two years ago it was 50 degrees and insanely cold in shorts higher up...That being said, I'll be out there May 19 (Friday)and 20 and need a partner for Triassic Sands on Friday and something similar or bigger on Saturday. Thinking Clod Tower, Mt. Wilson Routes, Ginger Cracks/Power Failure, The Nightcrawler, Tooth or Consequences... Open to other ideas. Any takers?

So then would May temperatures be the equivilent to Septemeber temps...with July packed in the middle being the hottest month?

Another hot weather question...anyone ever use electrolyte hydration tablets before?

I always carry some electrolyte tablets. Best deal is on Amazon. IMO opinion better than Gatorade or powerade.

thanks...I will bring some tablets to Vegas (I can get one product line for free) just never tried them. Reading about them, they seem like a good idea for hydrating in hot weather.

Hello!

I will be in Vegas from July 6-10 and I would like to find someone to climb with. Just a few pitches or some easy bouldering since it will be hot. Is anyone available?

Hi Molly, I'd be happy to climb with you around those dates.  Climbed yesterday and it was in the 60's in the shade with a breeze and we needed a layer.  Not guaranteeing those temps when you are here but there is still good, cool climbing to be had.
