Comments: Replaced bolts this morning. Although one hanger was a spinner,the actual existing bolts were quite solid and took some muscle to remove. I also tightened down all other bolts. I will go out in a couple weeks and check them all again.

Comments: New website for purchase of R.C. guidebooks. Try www.wildnevadaclimbingstore/ I am putting together a second edition that will include many of the other remote areas we established, but for now I still have some copies of the original.

Comments: Is this the little roof that is right above a very elaborate rock "home" ? If so the parking is at Buckskin Cliff Shadows Park, an equestrian park. It is south of the Gun Club. This is also the parking area for the Rodeo Wall which lies up wash northwest of this area.

Comments: The map that John supplied is the correct way in. This area has been climbed on for years by the likes of Henry Barber, Lynn Hill and Joe Herbst. A group of Boulder City climbers (Jim and Fred Lybarger,Tom Ray, George Smith, Dan Briley and friends) did most of the first ascents there and would know the names of most of the routes. I'm thinking about the ol' Keyhole Classic climbing comp that those guys held each year, and they had a top rope up on about everything that was climbable.

Comments: The Rainbow Canyon guidebook is completed and ready to print. I should have copies available in a week. Since it is a first edition, I am running just a limited amount.I'm hoping for useful feed back(rating consensus,missing info) so I can refine the next edition.If you are interested in buying one, let me know and we can set that up.

Comments: Richard Harrison and I put up this route, "Spanky Spangler". We rated it 10b and the first ascent was done without any extra gear, although we may go back and add a bolt .

Comments: I must say I was surprised to find a mini guide to Rainbow Canyon. Strange names for some mighty familiar routes. About 65% of the routes were put by me and Richard Harrison, 30% by Gary Fike, and the remaining 5% by others, including Bob Finlay and John Middendorf, two of the area "pioneers". Much assistance was given by Gary's wife Tanya and Richard's daughter Lisa.

All the routes are named and each has a great story to go with its first ascent. We put much sweat and money into the project, ... more >>
