Red Rocks Nevada Bouldering day 1 and 2

17 February, 2017

A super memorable week down in Nevada with Emily Neil and Jessa for some bouldering at Red Rocks, just outside Vegas.

I'm afraid I let these pictures sit for a few too many months before publishing them so I don't remember in great detail each day, but I'll give it a go.

Day 1/2 - The drive down and exploring the boulder field

We drove straight through the night from Victoria to get to Red Rocks. We went through some fully icy passes and finally descended into the flat lands of interior USA before hitting some flooding which caused a 4 hour detour through Salt Lake City. I think our final travel time was 25ish hours. Unfortunately, when we hit the outskirts of Vegas we also saw that the roads were wet. We found a sweet little campsite, made some dinner and crashed. Throughout the night it rained some more so we (with heavy hearts) agreed to not touch anything and just explore the Kraft Boulders area. Luckily it was a really nice day and a lot of the rock already looked dry so we were happy to explore and plan the rest of our week.
