Red Rocks, Nevada, is some of the best beginner and moderate multi-pitch climbing in the United States. Now combine that with cheap and easy airfare to Las Vegas, a multitude of lodging options from hotels to camping, and you have a true climbing destination.
Interested in checking it out for yourself? I've got the weekend of 10-13 October available, and we can start even sooner than that if you'd like a longer trip. $360/day for 1:1, or $215/per person/day for two guests. Offer ends 15 September!
Other Road Trips:
Washington Pass, North Cascades. Possibly my favorite local destination, Washington Pass and Mazama has an incredible concentration of easy-to-access moderate alpine rock climbs. Lodging options cover the whole spectrum. Awesome destination for a weekend from Seattle.
City of Rocks, Idaho. An insane number of single-pitch routes under 5.10, this destination lives up to its name. Camping amongst the towers and trees. Better for a long (4 days) weekend to a week.
Smith Rock, Oregon. The birthplace of American sport climbing, Smith also has some great trad climbing in the lower gorge and some classic multi-pitch rock routes. Lodging can vary from hotels just 30 minutes south in Bend to the campground right in the park. If you can get out of work early on Friday, this makes for a great weekend.
Boulder, Colorado. Special Offer, 23 October - 1 November!! I'll already be in Boulder, Colorado, for the AMGA Annual Meeting. If you're in the Denver area and interested in experiencing the iconic Flatirons, contact me!
