Not meant to ruffle any feathers and I know that the Red Rock Climbing Center is the historical "go to" for gym climbing near Red Rock on the west side of town and has great route setting, but I really feel like the facility is outdated by modern standards. Poor lighting, only 35 foot lead climbing walls, etc.. For being a large city near a world class destination, seems like the area is prime for a new state-of-the-art facility. I was just wondering if there has been any scuttlebutt or rumors of anything being planned for that side of town.

Before moving here (to Vegas) I heard earth treks had plans to open a gym close to RR but that was 3ish years ago from an employee at there Maryland location. How true that ever was who knows. 

But rent on that direction has got to be a major reason there isn't some gigantic facility on that side of town

With plans, it would seem, to keep expanding. I doubt they will make it to Summerlin anytime soon. =-)

Rumors have been abound about a new West side gym for years now, but nothing has come of it so far. 

Time will tell, but I suspect that it's not if a new big rope gym is coming to Vegas, but when.

Origin climbing and fitness is the best in LV I climb there often. Walls with ropes and tons of boulder problems...

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
