It’s that time of year, we’re peeling off our layers and getting ready to hit the rocks in “Climbers Paradise” Red Rocks, Nevada. We checked in with Girly Guide and lover of all desert climbs, Kitty Calhoun to talk about starting the season off right!
“What better way to start out the rock climbing season than by spending it in Red Rocks? Seriously, spring in the desert is awesome because you don’t have to put up with mud season or a shoulder season. You get a jump on rock climbing season, and on your tan. I really like starting out in Red Rocks in particular because it is so user-friendly. There are mostly short approaches and such a variety of types of climbs and grades of climbs. This means I can warm up on climbs that I feel comfortable on and get a lot of mileage. Also, the daylight hours are getting pretty long, so I can get in a full day of climbing and still have light to just hang with friends and tell stories – in shorts and t-shirts. And oh yeah, Vegas is so convenient and inexpensive. And to think… it is coming up soon. Yahoo! I can’t wait and hope to see you there!” – Kitty
Mountain Project says it best:
A few thousand routes, generally warm weather, every kind climbing from short sport routes to big 20-pitch outings, nearby Las Vegas for off-rock activities. Who could ask for more?
Throw in climbing with an amazing group of women and that’s all any Chick could ask for!
Fire up for Red Rocks coming up April 2 – 6th
