The Rock Climbing Guidebook to Red Rock Canyon, Nevada
This is a comprehensive guidebook to the rock climbs found in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, twenty miles to the west of the Las Vegas strip in Southern Nevada.
Nevada's Red Rock Canyon offers the climber everything from sport routes and bouldering to big aid walls and long free routes. The reliable weather, beautiful surroundings and great climbing make Red Rocks one of North America's most popular destinations during the fall, winter, and spring.
This Red Rock climbing guidebook provides detailed information on over 1700 rock climbs, using full written descriptions, maps, topos and photo diagrams. It includes a substantial number of climbing routes not found in previous guidebooks. It also expands on the descriptions and topos of many of the older routes and attempts to correct many lingering errors. In compiling the route descriptions for both new and older climbs, I have tried to use recent, first-hand experience as much as possible. Many descriptions were culled from various Red Rocks locals within a few hours of an ascent. Also, in researching this book, I climbed hundreds of routes myself in an attempt to make this the most complete, detailed, and accurate Red Rock Canyon guidebook to date.
The Red Rock guidebook is full color and printed on high quality coated paper to ensure crystal clear photographic reproduction. The binding is sewn/ saddle stitched to ensure excellent durability.
To provide historical background I have included a history, written with Larry DeAngelo, and also essays by Joanne Urioste, John Long and Larry Hamilton. To give a feel for the spectacular rock climbing there are over 60 action shots spread throughout the text, many featuring routes that have never appeared in print before.
