Nevada Rock Climbing

Whether you’re looking to scale an El Capitan-sized rock face, ascend the largest outdoor climbing wall on Earth, or looking for great rock climbing for kids, we’ve got you covered with thousands of routes and scrambles throughout uncrowded climbing terrain across Silver State. All you’ve gotta do is zero in on what type of climbing you want to do—bouldering, outdoor top-rope climbing, sport climbs, or trad climbing—gear up, and pick your route.

There’s no better place to get after rock climbing in Las Vegas than Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Named for its striking Aztec Sandstone—600 million years in the making—this national conservation area is one of the most popular in the country, beckoning millions of sightseers, scenic drivers, hikers, and, of course, climbers each year. Thousands of routes have been established in Red Rock and Calico Basin, and just 45 minutes beyond downtown Vegas, one of the best climbing areas in the West is incredibly easy to access.

You only get one... climb on.
Walls once busy, what are they up to now. Will that have forgotten the feel of human touch. Perhaps they prefer the baking hot sun. Certainly they don't miss the crowds.

We got out for some mild climbing with our party of three (#pregnancyjokes). FYI: there are postings about Falcon nesting at Castle Rock, but no official closures. Please be respectful of these creatures! They seemed to be at the top and north side of the rock, not in the gullies.

A genuine gift is, not a source of fortune but, a reward for the tenets of one's self. Recognition from those close to you or simply from someone acknowledgeding your achievements. So the next time you find yourself in a difficult situation, holding onto the remnants of what feels tangibly possible for you, don't give up nor give in to those inner demons. May you find new horizons and recompense. 🥠🎁

Nothing like some after work shenanigans to find some new rocks out in the middle of the Nevada desert. #tensionclimbing #flashedclimbing #pebblewrestling #gnarlyfueledthis #climbyourimpossible #gravitiesvictim #tahoeseason #tahoebouldering  #bouldering #trangoclimbing #fiveten #asanaclimbing #basecampreno #mesarimreno #climbingisbliss #aacgram #auraequipment #RiseTogether #fnxambassador #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbing_worldwide #adventuremore #liveclimbrepeat #teamgumbystrong #beheadwear #climbing #wallsaremeantforclimbing #amuerte
Life progresses in many layers and as time goes by, they peel back, uncovering and forcing us to realize that which makes us uncomfortable. Just as in climbing, a practice I still have much to learn from, the rock does not change it’s shape to suit your needs. You, yourself, need to mold and flex and adapt to adjust to the different textures, faces, and holds that are offered to you. You don’t choose what the climb has to offer, but you do get to choose how to go about it and that makes all the difference.💪🏼
