Red Rocks Rendezvous

The next RRR is March 30- April 1. Details here. I’m sure you’d have a great time at the Rendezvous. You definitely don’t need a big group to have a great time. And don’t be intimated by the climbing - If you can lead sport routes at 5.8-5.10 on big, safe bolts, you’ll have plenty of routes to do. If you’re comfortable with trad leading 5.7-5.8, you’ll have plenty of multi-pitch routes to do. If you have a rope, some quick draws and some motivation, there’d be a lot of climbing you could do with 2-3 people that’s about a 15 minute walk from a road.

I’d be more scared of the casinos than of the climbing. You can lose big time in the casinos. (If you want to know where Russell and I stayed in “Naked City,” I’ll be happy to tell you. Or, you can stay here which is about 10 minutes from Red Rock park. And it’s where we had a huge buffet meal for $16.)

I liked this video because it showed clearly what the rock is like. Sharp edges, that feel soft to the hands.  Big heucos. Great friction.
