Hey y'all,

The wife and I are heading to Vegas in a few weeks. I climb a lot outdoors, she's climbed a few times (fine for TR belay, nervous about lead belay). Any suggestions for areas in Red Rocks or other close to Vegas crags where I can set up top ropes for us to climb?

Much appreciated,
Oren

Grades certainly help in pointing you in the correct direction, but there is also a whole book dedicated to Top Ropes and Fun Climbs in Red Rock. That may be a solid place to begin your search

Cannibal Crag in Calico Basin, It has bolts on top to allow you to Rap to Top Anchors. Grades are 5.7-5.11
Great 5.9 and 10a on it.

Thanks y'all. Looking for climbs in the 5.4-5.10 range.

I would suggest Newcastle crag, you can usually find shade there as well. Also in the first pullout.

Sandstone quarry pullout, you can TR the front wall climbs(some slab climbs @ 5.8ish + fender bender an awkward 5.6), you could also do mans best friend(5.7, 2 p) while there if you were feelin like teaching multi on a "heavily bolted" sport route.

+1 for amusement park. Should be in the shade in the afternoon.

RE: Amusement Park- can you get to the anchors for TR without climbing them on lead first?!?

Yeah you can walk up the ramp and there are rap anchors to get you to the mussey hooks
