Which Is A Better Place To Climb, Las Vegas Or Boulder?

This article was written by a Boulder native who is temporarily living in Vegas. He details the friendly arguments about which is a better place to climb. I like these quotes:

Outdoor cross-training is accessible anywhere in Boulder: trail running, road and mountain biking, hiking, etc.”

“Indoor cross-training is better, and accessible anywhere in Vegas: dancing to world-class DJs, sport drinking at the Yard House,..”

“We have the best year-round sport climbing in America [in Vegas], including some of the hardest routes in the country.

“Sport climbing is passé. Bouldering is way radder. The best boulderers in the world travel to Rocky Mountain National Park and Mount Evans.”
