Winter will be setting in and this is a great time to head out to Vegas and Red Rocks for a fun filled weekend of climbing. This is the 3rd annual December Red Rocks Trip. Last year, 22 people from Get Your Climb On from Nor Cal went to Red Rocks and had an epic adventure. This year (since I, the organizer, lives in San Diego) will be joing 2 Meetup groups: San Diego Rock Climbing Group (So Cal) and Get Your Climb (Nor Cal). This meetup will be reminiscient of the old days of the RCS when there was a chapter in Northern and Southern California. The RCS used to meet in Yosemite. It's winter time and a great time of the year to go to Red Rocks.
The trip should entail everyone coming in on Friday and head back either Sunday evening or Monday morning. Personally since I live in San Diego and it is a 5-6 hour drive, I will be driving up Friday morning and driving back Monday morning. Since Las Vegas is a short flight for both San Diego and the Bay Area; I would recommend flying in Friday after work and Monday before work. This will maximize the time of climbing. BUT it is up to you when you want to fly in. We will be climbing Calico Basin on Saturday and the First and Second pullouts within the park on Sunday.
I recommend everyone booking a room at the Red Rocks Casino. This is the closests accomodation (besides camping) to Red Rocks. It is a very nice hotel and close to a lot of the local restuarants. Feel free to split rooms with people to reduce the cost. Also, car pooling can save money, but not necessarily time.
This trip is organized so anyone can come out climbing. Anyone from a newbie to an experience Trad climber can come out and enjoy this trip. The agenda for Saturday/Sunday will be get up, go climb all day, come back and meetup for dinner and socialize.
This is going to be a great event joing 2 Meetup Groups. Come out and enjoy a great weekend of climbing.
.....Oh Yeah, and it's my birthday on December 10. ;)
