red rocks beta

Postby sevrdhed » Thu Jan 12, 2012 9:53 am

I'm going to be in vegas next work for some work shit. I'm staying in a resort just outside of red rocks... like 4 miles away. However, I'll be busy almost the entire time, with the exception of monday afternoon.

So, monday afternoon, I want to go bouldering in red rocks. I wont have a pad or anyone to climb with me, but I do have a ride out there. Someone spew some beta at me for getting to the pinnacle of crap sandstone bouldering, the kraft boulders, and what I can hop on without a pad.

drive your dong-ass towards the visitors center, but don't go to it.
pass the camping on drivers left, and go a bit further until you see
the Red Springs turn off, this is where you turn right. Follow this
main road through a residential hood until its very end (comes to an
upside down and backwards L ) note, you stay/lean right on the
main road. Avoid the picnic area lot/main TH. once at the upside down
and backwards "L" have driver throw you from moving vehicle, look
ahead towards the strip and start walking on a decent trail down into
the boulders, you'll be able to see them. the first thing you'll encounter
is the cube....its like 50 feet tall, so keep walking. i'd say, start in the
middle and work your way out, a majority of the good problems are
here and onward. what you can do and can't do will be obvious given
you'll be carrying a gum wrapper for protection. locate and do the PEARL,
you'll know it when u see it cause there'll be somebody on it cursing and
screaming one Jesus H. Christ.

and don't forget to grab that crimp and highstep, repeat until at the top.

You could walk past monkey bars into gateway canyon. Lots of short problems over soft landings. Plus you can bask in the v15 glory.

I'll make the drive so your video can be complete with Doug-like wobblers about you not protecting the monkeybar traverse well enough...

The warm up boulders at Craft are short and have flat landings also. Make sure you try The Pearl, the most sand bag v4 ever.

God I love the term wobbler
I could agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
