We're thinking about spending a few weekdays in Red Rock this week and we're wondering if people are noticing spring break causing a clog on trade routes. If we're only here for a few days we want to climb a lot and don't want to wait in a ton of lines. Anyone have beta? Jake Stern

Rock Climbing Photo: Rapping off the Matron October, 2010
Not sure what grades you're looking at, but we didn't find it too bad with some planning ahead. We climbed Crimson Chrysalis, Frogland and Jubilant Song this past week without issue all on weekdays.

CC we approached from outside the park, started hiking at 5:30 and we were first on route. Had we arrived 15 minutes later we would have had a very long day behind slower parties. Of course we still had to rap through all the people coming up - wish there was a separate rap line. It's such a cool climb, but get there early or be frustrated.

Frogland we had a casual start around 10 am, had 1 party ahead and 2 parties behind, everyone just had to be a little patient and it wasn't a big deal. There was a small backup at the Chockstone pitch was all. We were able to spot the route from the parking lot to see how crowded it was before heading up.

JS we were the only people out there which was amazing. Definitely the best experience of the week! I think we started hiking around 8:00 which made for a relaxed climbing day.

We also had plans b and c for every area just in case the routes we wanted were crowded. Have a great trip!
