This one has been in the works for a bit but we just needed to finalize some details for timing. Jesse and I are heading to Cincinnati from Tuesday, April 8th until the following Monday the 14th. That day we are going to fly directly to Vegas to climb for the rest of the week at Red Rocks. We are going to stay at the campground just outside the park (basic tent sites and bathrooms. Showers are at the community center close by and there is also a Whole Foods and great coffee shop really close by). If you haven’t ever been to this area before I can’t emphasize enough how awesome it is. The Hoover dam is close by, the park is gorgeous with great climbing, bouldering, trail running, road biking and hiking. A lot of the climbing is really beginner friendly (there is also a climbing school there) and our experience that time of year is really hot sunny days and cool nights. It’s a nice kick start to spring/summer.
We have talked to a few of you already in the gym who climb but we want to extend this invitation to anyone else who would like to come. This is a “you organize yourself and we’ll see you there” situation 🙂 That said, we can give you a ton of info and suggestions about how to go about it. The other option for you is to book a Vegas hotel package for the weekend of the 18-20th and have a more “classic” Vegas trip.
So… the dates we’ll be in Vegas are April 14-21st. Talk to us if this is something that interests you.
Here are some pics from where we consider to be one of the more magical places on earth…. These are from April 5 years ago!
