Description:

Red Rocks! Typically the VOC tradition is to head down to Smith Rock over the Remembrance Day holiday to escape the rain and cold in Squamish. However, I have the whole week off so I am planning on climbing further afield in fabulous Las Vega... er I mean Red Rocks, Nevada!

This will be an entirely self-sufficient trip, meaning you must organize your own transportation, partner, gear etc. However, myself and a couple other VOCers will be down there so the more the merrier!

Climb sweet stuff like this: http://www.supertopo.com/rock-climbing/Red-Rocks-Black-Velvet-Canyon-Epinephrine

Logistics-wise, Red Rocks is about a 20 hour drive to Red Rocks from Vancouver, so in many ways it is easier to fly. As of today there were super cheap flights available from Bellingham! Check it out. Also looking for a couple people to split the cost of a rental car with (mandatory for those flying and opens up other areas like Joshua Tree)

Email faff only, no pre-trip is planned as this is an informal, self-organized trip. However, I'm happy to ask any questions you might have regarding gear, logistics or anything else!
