And finally for the last recap post, then we will be in present time!
Erin and I spent most of January and February in Las Vegas. I had wanted to spend some time there for years exploring Red Rocks National Conservation Area because it looked like there were tons of world class boulders to check out.
It did not disappoint!
The climbing did end up being fairly scattered and there was a substantial amount of hiking involved. This was something we were accustomed to though after having spent a lot of time in Rocky Mountain National Park and we weren’t bothered by it in the slightest. The desert landscape in Red Rocks has a very diverse fauna and the many drastic rock formations are vibrant with various colors making it an absurdly beautiful area to spend time in.https://www.instagram.com/p/BBKyRZ9FBpE/?taken-by=iancotterb
Our main goal for our time there was just to get to know the area and climb on as many sick boulders as possible. We definitely did that! We also climbed with a ton of friends, old and new, which made for an unforgettable and very enjoyable experience.
While we didn’t project anything more than a few quick sessions we still had quite a bit of success and we climbed in most of the canyons the area had to offer. That being said there is still so much we didn’t see. We are undoubtedly looking forward to a return trip, and next time we will surely buckle down and siege more of the harder, and super inspiring lines.https://www.instagram.com/p/BCRlCRElBvi/?taken-by=iancotterb
The season unfortunately ended for us more abruptly than we would have liked, with uncomfortably warm temperatures rolling in consistently by the end of February.
The cooler Colorado weather and the prospect of working and saving up some cash was too much for us to resist and we made a move.
Happy Easter everyone and next post expect to hear about some haps in Colorado.
