Protect Our Community with Social Distancing

Urgent Update: March 29th, 2020 Please avoid popular climbing locations, like Calico Basin. In these unprecedented times, we're calling on the climbing community to help us get through this and flatten the curve. The Southen Nevada Climbers Coalition loves our local community and those visiting; these precautions are necessary to protect our community so we can all make it through this.

Note that the following locations are also closed at this time:
  • Red Rock Canyon (Visitor Center, Scenic Drive)
  • Sloan Canyon (Parking, Visitor Center)
  • Late Night Trailhead
  • Red Springs Picnic Area
  • All Campsites
Generally, you should avoid climbing 24 to 72 hours after rain, depending on where you intend to climb. Sunny locations like Sunny and Steep or Stratocaster Wall will need much less time to dry when compared to places like Black Corridor

Las Vegas has plenty of rainy day options, with climbing that rivals Red Rock itself. If you've found yourself in town during a rainy week, check out Irene's great writeup for what to do.
