Thawing out in Red Rock…

One of my all time favorite places to climb is Red Rock, Nevada.

Jeff & I had some time off at the end of January so we decided to make a trip to get some climbing in before the busy season starts for me & continues for him.

The weather was absolutely perfect. Cool so the rock felt great, but not too cold where we were miserable. It was a nice chance to “thaw out” from the snow at home in Truckee. Haha!

We drove our camper van down on Tuesday – making a pitstop in Reno to see two of our favorite people {Brittany & Rick} in their new stomping grounds of Sparks, NV. We enjoyed lunch & a beverage at Great Basin Brewery & then hit the road –  stopping in Tonopah, NV as a halfway point where we parked the van & slept…. Oh, did I mention – that night it was 10 degrees?? Haha. Luckily we had tons of blankets & stayed plenty warm!

The next morning we hit the road to Vegas. When we arrived into Vegas we checked into a condo we were staying at for a few days – got comfy and relaxed…planning out our next couple of days of climbing at Red Rock.

The next handful of days turned out to be absolutely amazing. Jeff’s parents flew in a couple of days into the trip & joined us for their first time climbing! The trip was seriously perfect!

Now that we are home, our skin is healing & we are on to planning our next trip (for my 30th birthday!!) to Bishop!
