Meetup Description: Hey Everyone!

Registration for the 2009 Red Rock Rendezvous has opened! For those not in the know, this is one of the biggest climbing festivals in the West. Hundreds of climbing clinics and tons of activities for non-climbers (i.e. mountain biking tours and backcountry cooking classes). It is for all levels, even if you have never climbed and want to learn. In previous years members have met and climbed with famous world class climbers. I had the pleasure of climbing with Chris Sharma a couple of years ago and our resident SF substitute greeter, Michele, climbed with Chris Lindner. I recommend checking out the link and signing up for clinics ASAP as the good ones get filled up fast. Event is March 20 - 22, 2009. Clinics are held on the 21st and 22nd.

For the maximum experience, plan on camping out with us. Make sure to pay for the camping fee when you register. Otherwise the Las Vegas strip is only a few miles away. Nearest casino is the Red Rock Casino. Camping is more fun tho, yes, Michele had her first camping experience at last year's Rendezvous and she loved it.

I'll update this Meetup event as we get closer to the actual event. Hope to see most of you there!

Hi All-

Have people registered and bought plan tickets for Red Rock Rendevous yet? All of my buddies are on the fence about this event, but I'm ready to commit! Just am not thrilled about having to pay $75 for a taxi ride to the campsite by myself. Let me know if you already have tickets and wouldn't mind splitting a cab.

My potential itinerary was:

Depart SFO 3/19 at 4pm (or 7pm) to arrive LAS at 5:35pm (or 8:35pm)
Return 3/22 at 7:10pm and arrive SFO 8:45pm

Let me know what your plans are (all those registered or that are planning on going)!

Thanks,
Chris

Looks like all the good clinics are getting filled up fast...so anyone still contemplating should probably consider signing up in the next cpl of days....think it comes to $104 for the clinics + camping.

By the way, looks like the daytime weather is going to be fantastic. Temps will reach upwards of 80. This does mean however that everyone should bring plenty of water while you are out at your clinics. Unfortunately, over night temps will be chilly (down to mid-40s) so plan accordingly. Also, keep in mind that the weather can be a little unpredictable, last year there was a little rain and tons of wind at one point. I would also suggest ear plugs as the party can go well into the night.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all there.
