Red Rocks: A Climbers Guide
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 1,700 rock climbs, using full written descriptions, maps, topos and colour 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. Many descriptions were culled from various Red Rocks locals within a few hours of an ascent. 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 the auther has 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.
