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.

FOOT TO FACE! FOOT TO FACE!

So proud of Cait, seecaitclimb (she/her) for sending Yin and Yang!

Here's to friendship lady! So glad for taking a chance on an unknown internet person, one of the best decisions of my life.
This was about as perfect a weekend as anyone could ask for. Climbed for 3 days straight at Red Rocks and spent quality time with some of my favorite people. So many amazing photos and stories to share. I’ve mentioned before that I’m learning to build and clean anchors and this is me rappelling after my 5th official clean and I suppose my 5th time rappelling as well! I’m really enjoying visiting all my regular hiking spots and seeing them as a climber. Next stop, Joshua Tree! .

A few pics from my last climb at Robbers Roost in Mt Charleston. I’ve only been climbing for a couple months now. So far its been quite a challenge, I have a lot of work to do to get better. I’m really happy though to find a new way to be closer to nature.
Jessie getting another FA. Just out exploring and putting up new problems yesterday in the Spring Mountain Wilderness.

Rock climbing is one of the best natural arm workouts around. Swipe right to reveal North Lake Tahoe’s Alpine Challenge #4: Rock climb at Donner Summit. Whether you’re currently in North Lake Tahoe, or on your way for spartan World Championship, find a mountain near you and work those biceps! #NLTAlpineChallenge
.
**Mindful Moment**—Courage & Strength: Channel your inner mountain warrior and toss all your hesitations to the side as you scale up the summit. Put all your courage into each hold, and relish in the thrill and sense of achievement as you reach the top.
Not just a whip, a pig tail whip!

JJ (he/him) missed the crimp on the runout.
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
The Cube... Have you climbed this one yet? There are 15 different bouldering routes on this rock...
.
I used two lume cubes to light the ‘cube’ and sent my buddy Richie up with a third all with diffusers on them. Shot on my Sony a7r4. .
Have a great week friends!
