Just looking for apartment beta from anyone in the climbing community out living near Red Rocks, NV. Just got a job and am moving out there in a few weeks. Any info on where is a good area or where the good community of climbers live
Yo! I just relocated back to LV. Live outside the 215 or in Summerlin. Renting a house here is cheap, my gf and I are renting a 1,400+ ft place West of the 215 off of Charleston (main road to Red Rock) for 1,195/mo. with nice backyard and all. It's stupid cheap. There are lots of deals out there like that. If you need an apt or are single etc, the apartments near the Costco off of Charleston are supposed to be nice and there are some other nice ones off of Town Center between Desert Inn (DI) and the 215. Generally areas of avoidance increase the closer to the center of the city you get and decrease as you get further to the West and outside the 215 in general.
I love this town! Great climbing on multiple types of rock. Epicenter of the best the south west has to offer regarding climbing.
Great lakes for sailing and water fun.
Fantastic deserts al around yah.
Shiitey ski area but hey... we have one of those as well.
Where else can you get sushi (within eye shot of the crags) on a Tuesday night at midnight ?
Ohhhh yeah.... have you checked out 'Mountainproject/RedRock/NV forum ?
Over there ^ there are some 'Stickies' with great info.
'Dirty Gri Gri' in particular is a great local resource and very obliging with her wealth of local knowledge.
Go to 'beer nights' when they come up. They are a great way to meet some of the locals like GiGi and Larry 'D'.
