Red Rock Rendezvous 2011

It’s that time of year again… We’re revving up for one of our favorite events — Red Rock Rendezvous!

Kicking off this Friday, we’ve got a ton going on including: sponsored climbing clinics featuring Osprey athlete Majka Burhardt, sponsored mountain biking clinics featuring Osprey athlete Alison Gannett, a book signing with Majka Burhardt, Alison’s Green Trivia Quiz, daily sizing and fitting clinics, free technical hydration and climbing pack demos, great gear giveaways and much, much more!

Located about 15 miles west of Las Vegas, the Red Rock escarpment offers an estimated 1,700 different climbing routes of all grades and lengths… many of world class structure. The area is officially named the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (RRCNCA) and is administered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. With the exception of a few canyons and crags, all of the climbing in Red Rock is accessible by NV Highway 159 and a one way scenic loop road that begins at the National Conservation Area Visitor Center.

For the Red Rock Rendezvous clinics, most of the proposed clinic sites will be on these crags located within four major areas within RRCNCA:

First Pullout: The Fixx Cliff, Dog Wall, Tuna & Chips Wall, Meat Puppets Wall, Bermuda Wall, Mark’s Beginner Crag, Mark and Jake’s Area
Second Pullout: Sweet Pain Wall, Black Corridor, Great Red Book Area, The Sandbox, The Magic Bus, Sun City, Bewitched
Sandstone Quarry: Guide’s Wall, Mass Production Wall, Wake-up Wall, Avian Wall, The Trophy, The Hall of Fame, Frictiony Face Panty Waist, Split Infinity, Nevada Book, Spikes and Twine, Sub-America Crag
Willow Spring: Ragged Edges Cliff, The Case Face, Black Tract Area, Outhouse Wall, Karate Crack Area

These crag areas provide a wide variety of face, crack, bolted and non bolted climbing, one and multi-pitch routes, ranging from 5.3 to 5.12 plus. There WILL be something for everyone!

Hope to see you there!
