This hike is only open to those who have done any of my Tier 4 or higher hikes with me. Sign up is through the wait list only.

This hike is a Black Tier/Tier 5 hike on my Scrambling Tiers list.

Helmets are always welcome. Be sure to use one that doesn't block your sight.

Always carry "in case of emergency" numbers with you.

This is the route that we did for Janie's Birthday last year. She has some favorite obstacles that I'm including. I'm also including the trash compactor, porthole slot, bannister slot, sebbastion's passage, the dangling slot, the chimney and more.

Not for beginners or those afraid of heights. There are many places that require advanced scrambling skills on this hike and there is some exposure as well. It requires experience and technique. You must be able to lift yourself up and lower yourself down using your arms.

No guests will be allowed on this hike.

The Vegas Hikers Pins are now available to everybody.

These pins have been made possible by generous donations from many of our members. They are available for a $5 donation. There are now pins for reaching 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350 and 400 hikes with Vegas Hikers. For a $10 or higher donation, you will get the Vegas Hikers pin and you will receive the other pins when you reach those milestones. All donations will go toward replenishing the pin fund so that we can continue to provide them.
