Red Rock Rendezvous - March 16-19, 2018!

This year our guides will be running multi-pitch climbing trips throughout the event and beginner to advanced climbing programs on March 16th. They will also be teaching a variety of programs on the March 17th and 18th; and will be running all day multi-pitch climbing programs on the 19th.

If you have never attended Red Rock Rendezvous before, you are missing out. This is considered by many to be the best climbing event of the year. Everybody meets in the desert for three-days of climbing instruction, clinics, food, and fun. It's a great place to rub elbows with the biggest names in climbing. But it is also a great place to just sit back and soak up climbing culture. Following is a video that was made at the event:

Every year the event just gets better and I have to say that last year's was the most fun so far. Here is a blog with a number of photos and videos from the 2015 Red Rock Rendezvous.

Major climbing athletes make their way out to the Mojave Desert for the Rendezvous every year. Big names at the event include the likes of Beth Rodden, Peter Croft, Katie Brown, and Andreas Marin. But some of our best guides will also be on hand. These include people like Mike Powers, Richard Riquelme, Alasdair Turner, Ian McEleney, Paul Rosser, Andrew Yasso, Chad Cochran, Dustin Byrne, Ben Gardner, Tad McCrea, Doug Foust, Quino Gonzalez, Britt Ruegger, Jeremy Devine, Jared Drapala, Will Gordon, Justin Moynihan, Jenny Merian, Zach Lovell, Will Gordon, Katie Griffith, Alejandra Garces, Kevin McGarity, Steve Johnson, Zak Krenzer, Lindsey Hamm, Katlynne Schaumberg, George Bieker, Calvin Morris, Jim Mediatore, and Dave Richards....and more!
