Some people like to ski during reading week, but some of us want to climb rock.  This is a loosely organized road trip to Red Rocks near Las Vegas to get our climbing fix.  The climbing there is world class with everything from short sport climbs to long multi-pitch traditional routes, all on some very cool and funky sandstone.

If you want to make the pilgrimage, you should start to scrounge for climbing partners, rides and gear soon.  This is not an instructional trip.  You need to organize your own rides and climbing partners.  You should not expect to sign-up and then have someone drive you there and setup top ropes or drag you up a climb (unless they agree to do so before going). Where you stay is up to you.  Besides driving, some people may wish to fly there and rent a car (the casinos subsidize both of these).

If you sign-up as interested, maybe others will contact you looking to form a group or you can contact others (this is better), but otherwise, you must organize things yourself.  There is also a wiki for organizing rides and groups.

If the weather is bad, Joshua Tree is nearby and might be drier.
