No Kidding - Harry is almost neighbours with Mike Tyson and has a killer pad I rented off of him last year for 3 months - it's a great place for rock and roll yoga parties

It was great climbing with you Mike and actually being part of one of your real time TR's. Great to see Bruce down here and meet Travis(Vegas climber) and Christina. Next year you should come down Jim B and enjoy this fine place. Here are a few pics I took of El Grande. Here he is about to ingest a 4.2Ib breakfast burrito into his 6' 7" frame.

Can't wait to get out again but unfortunately that won't be for a while as we prepare for my wife's bone marrow transplant on March 20th.

I'll be at another conference in Las Vegas April 5-11 (NAB). I hope to have either or both April 6 or 7 (SAT/SUN) if things go well with demo setup.

If I get myself out to Red Rocks, is it difficult to find a partner? Is there decent bouldering? Guide services? I've never been there before.

The decision on what I'm doing will be a game time decision; it will literally be a decision made the evening prior to going out there. Maybe I'll just go bouldering and hiking....

Wow! How did I miss these?? Oh wait. Guess it's been a rough couple weeks ;)

Gunkie; I know there is a local website where people Advertise for partners. Not sure what it is. Even just going for hikes and scrambles is so worth it. It's beautiful out there!!!

Is there a bus service that goes from Las Vegas to Red Rocks NCA and back?

Hey Gunkie!

No bus out to the NCA. You can usually find partners here, on (sorry gang) Mountain Project, and at the gym (Red Rock Climbing Center) or Desert Rock Sports on West Charleston. The gym and DRS both have guide companies.

Plenty of bouldering, sport routes, trad routes, multi, big wall, etc. Just depends on your flavor. I will shoot you a message.

Can someone give me the low down on a late exit from the loop road area? I've previously just parked out of the loop if on a long day's outing. Sounds like i might not need to do the extra walking...

Well, it's been awhile... I'm sitting in Bellingham international with this funny deja-view feeling. It feels like it happened to someone else though.. My foot is still partially numb so i guess that's a good indication that i did indeed have a spinal cord Injury, less than two years ago.

I'm pretty stoked to leave the wet coast.



On the way down, I was running late, as usual. I was passing a truck in the passing lane on a corner just outside horseshoe bay when i saw a huge puddle in my road. I ditched some speed quickly and when i hit the puddle i started to fishtail towards the truck, instinctively i cranked the wheel into the spin, and managed to come out straight.. Needless to say, i drove a little more cautiously after that incident! Lol got the adrenaline pumping tho!!!

Weston's coming to pick me up when i land, and hopefully it won't rain on our parade tomorrow!!

Yeeeeehaw! Git Sum!

What a nice thread and I got a lot of info out of it. If Mike didn't make it clear: it's pretty much pissing down rain here in the PNW(PSW if you're Canad). I'm trying Vantage tomorrow, but it's been a long time since I've climbed on that stuff.

Thanks Joe! Sweet Pics! I love it here too. Means a lot to get back here, since at one point i thought i might never walk again..

Hey Phylp! I'm staying here and Travis is picking me up, so we'll figure something out.. Weather looks kinda iffy for multi..

Thanks for the ride tonight Weston!!
