Break out of your winter hibernation and break in your new rock shoes at the 10th annual Red Rock Rendezvous this weekend, April 5-7. America’s greatest climbing festival is sponsored in part by SCARPA North America and will be a weekend-long celebration filled with climbing clinics, games, yoga and of course beer. Located only a few shameful minutes from the Vegas strip, Red Rocks provides an amazing venue with thousands of climbing routes, ranging from short sport routes to massive 20 pitch epics. The desert oasis makes for a nice change from the piles of snow in your front yard, and you can finally lounge if some shorts and soak up some sunshine.
The Red Rock Rendezvous is a climbing festival designed for climbers of all abilities to meet new climbers, learn safety and climbing techniques, and become better, safer climbers. “Chalk full” of 150 clinics, the Rendezvous offers clinics ranging from Intro to Sport Climbing for Beginners to multi pitch clinics for more advanced climbers. There are also a handful of safety clinics such as the Self Rescue Clinic, a few non-climbing clinics including mountain biking and trail running seminars, and a service project sponsored by SCARPA. Led by top climbing professionals such as SCARPA regional athletes Rob Pizem and Shingo Ohkawa, you’re destined to walk away from the Rendezvous with a few new tricks or a new found passion for climbing.
