New this year, The Michigan Ice Fest Guides are teaming up with Red Rock Climbing Guides to provide a spring getaway to Red Rock Canyon Nevada! Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is situated 20 minutes away from the Vegas strip but for all intense purposes it seems like a million miles away.
As you drive into the park, taking in the startling contrast of colors of red sandstone layered through gray limestone in the sheer cliff faces, some of which reach a staggering 1,800 feet This sandstone is part of the same geologic formation, known as the Navajo Formation, that is also found throughout the southwest United States. The friction of the soft sandstone is amazing and the black patina plates offer incredibly positive holds making for beautifully flowing multi pitch routes.
In the canyons and on the tower walls, we will find some of the longest, best, high quality sandstone in the nation. To take full advantage of these desert classics, and long routes, we are keeping our guide to client ratio of 3 to 1. Paired into teams with similar goals and objectives, we will divide up into small teams, spending two days climbing the various 4-5 star multi pitch climbs located at Red Rocks.
Our evenings will be spent sharing stories of the days adventures and evening programs from local legends. We will group camp at Red Rock Campground, Red Rock Canyon’s standard, RV, and group campsites are located in the stunning Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, an approximate 20 mile drive from “The Las Vegas Strip.” Visitors enjoy hiking, rock climbing, bike riding and scenic driving in this unique Mojave Desert environment.
Las Vegas has always been a place where you can have your cake and eat it too. And sometimes go back for seconds—or maybe even thirds. So it only makes sense that buffets have become synonymous with the culture of Sin City. We will spend our last night together sharing a meal at one of the strips famous buffets!
April 18-19th. We’ll be heading to Vegas at the perfect time. Spring is amazing in Red Rocks, not too hot, not too cold.
$1200 includes 2 days of guided climbing, permits, park entrance fee, camping fee, Red Rocks Climbing Guidebook, DRS Tee and Hat, Price DOES NOT INCLUDE transportation to Vegas, rental car, food or guide gratuity.
