Description:

Sick of the ski season and want to get back to rock climbing? Ever been to Red Rocks Nevada? 

So far, there is already a group of VOCers that are heading down there for the break. It's the desert (during the winter) so the nights are expected to be cold but the days are supposed to be sunny and warm (ranging from 5 to 15 degrees C as a high) so the rock should still be great for climbing during the day. Red Rocks has tons of sport and trad climbing so it's great even if you don't have trad gear. 

This is a tentative trip. It would be good to see who is interested in going and who has cars that they would be willing to drive down to Nevada instead of flying. Hopefully if there is enough interest and car spaces, people can get into different car groups and figure out when they want to leave, where they will be planning on staying near Red Rocks, etc. Departure and return dates are dependent on the driver. 

***Please sign up as interested or committed if you are planning on attending the meeting. I need to know how many people will be coming so that I can change my room booking if more space is needed***

Note: THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER FRIENDLY TRIP. 

The assumed beginning and end dates of this trip are Feb 18 to Feb 26.

Note: Pretrip meeting has been postponed to Thursday, Feb 9.

Pretrip meeting location has been scheduled. It will be in SCRF 1022 (Neville Scarfe Building). Be there at 6:00 PM.
