    • Saturday, October 28, 2017
    • Sunday, November 05, 2017
    • Red Rocks, NV


    The Club is organizing a trip to Red Rock Canyon in Nevada at the end of October 2017.  Please carefully read everything below before registering SO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE REGISTERING FOR!


    WHO SHOULD REGISTER?


    Anyone that is interested in a week-long cragging trip with the club. Red Rocks Canyon is home to a huge number of sport climbs, single- and multi-pitch trad routes, and bouldering problems. You don't have to climb super-hard or have years of experience to have fun and find stuff to climb for a week in Red Rock Canyon. Additionally, Joshua Tree, another major climbing destination, is within driving distance.  While we encourage people to register with a partner who also plans to go, we will try very hard to match people up that do not have a partner.  So if you don't have someone lined up to climb with, but know how to lead belay and/or lead climb, please register, let us know what your abilities are and any particular goals you have.  WHEN YOU COMPLETE REGISTRATION YOU WILL RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL...PLEASE READ THIS AND FIND THE LINK TO THE SPREADSHEET FOR THIS TRIP!


    LODGING:

    To be determined. 


    There is primitive camping available with water and pit toilets. However, the club was unable to secure a group campsite, so we will leave it to individual members to secure campsites for those interested.


    The club is gauging interest in a group AirBnB rental for the 9 days. The price will be split among anyone who wishes to participate. Current estimates look like approximately $150 per week per person in a shared 8-person house.


    Red Rock Canyon is also located impossibly close to Las Vegas city limits. There are also many reasonably priced hotels/motels in easy driving distance in the Summerlin suburbs of Las Vegas.



    TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS/RENTAL CARS


    We will assist with organizing travel and car rentals by helping people partner up.  This will done by via the trip spreadsheet.  Please see the link to the sheet in your confirmation email.


    Flight options

    Fly into Las Vegas. Flights are generally cheap for the distance.


    We recommend flying on Southwest Air due to the two free checked bags and the ease of cancelling your flights/rescheduling.  Remember, you'll be transporting climbing and camping gear...it gets heavy!


    Rental cars

    Once the roster is established we recommend that partner teams work together to carpool to the Park.  In the end, everyone needs to be flexible and work together and plan ahead for each day to figure out how to catch a ride to trail heads.


    Food and supplies

    There are plenty of places to get supplies in the city of Las Vegas. Near Red Rock Canyon, there is a gear store that carries a good selection of climbing equipment, as well as boulder pad rentals, if that is what tickles your fancy.


    Guidebooks

    We highly recommend you and/or your climbing partner pick up a copy of the relevant guidebooks for the area.


    CLIMBING:

    "Red Rock: a few thousand routes, generally warm weather, every kind climbing from short sport routes to big 20-pitch outings, nearby Las Vegas for off-rock activities."

    https://www.mountainproject.com/v/red-rock/105731932


    Please note that you should not (and cannot safely) climb at Red Rocks for 24-48 hours after a rain. There are a large number of crags in the area that are safe to climb after inclement weather, if we happen to encounter it. Please be respectful of local climbing ethics.


    Cancellation Policy:
    If you can no longer make the event, please change your registration as soon as possible. This allows people on the wait list to join. If you fail to show for an event and do not cancel within 48 hours, you will be considered a no show. Club members who have 3 or more no shows will not be able to register for future events for a period of one year whether its due to failure to cancel or the person does not show up for the event at all.

     

    PATC-MS Member Only policy: This event is for members of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club-Mountaineering Section only, in good standing with liability waivers on file, unless otherwise stated


    Reminder:
    Climbing is a dangerous sport and serious injury may occur.  By participating in this trip you assume all risk of responsibility for your own safety.
