Praise for the Guide
The first time I climbed in Red Rock it blew my mind. I moved to the Las Vegas area in 2014 solely for the world class climbing. This guidebook is by far the most comprehensive and beautiful guide I've ever seen. I have two copies, one for the crag, and one for my coffee table. It's awesome to see all the new development come to life in print.
Red Rocks hasn't always been known for its bouldering, but all that has changed in a big way. The amount of new classic lines coming out of this area is mind boggling. It's truly a global destination and this book is a valuable addition to locals and visitors alike. I can't wait to get back out there.
I have so many fond memories of days spent climbing with friends on beautiful boulders in the striking, desert landscape of Red Rocks. Not only is this guide spot on for the nuts and bolts of getting around, it’s a gorgeous work that will get you psyched to go out and make your own memories!
Southern Nevada continues to produce some of the most incredible bouldering in the world! It seems like there's an endless supply of five-star lines for those that want to get out and explore! The new edition of the Southern Nevada Bouldering is comprehensive and gets you up to date with all of the new development in the region over the past few years!
Red Rocks enchants. I remember visiting Kraft Boulders with Lynn Hill and Randal Grandstaff, circa 1977, and yarding up what later became The Pearl, the highball on The Cube, the Angel Dyno (tricky with no pads), and a host of other classics that had never felt human hands. The same experiences are still open to any modern boulderer with a restless spirit and the energy to explore new areas that abound throughout Southern Nevada. The area deserves close study, and rewards you handsomely. The great distances and deep silences remind us that life - and bouldering - can be monumental.
