Group Single-Pitch Top-Rope Climbing

1 day

Meet your online community in the offline world and expand you skillset at the best sandstone in the US. Just over 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, you’ll find stunning single-pitch routes ready to be climbed. Slip into your first harness and learn proper hand and foot placement for optimal climbing under the watchful eye of a guide. With four hours on the rocks, you’ll be introduced to the fundamentals like anchors, belaying and more. If you’re more than familiar with these terms, brush up on your techniques and up your game on 5.6 to 5.10 routes.

Things to know

Things to know

What’s included?

    • A local, certified rock climbing guide with extensive knowledge of the area
    • Half day on the rocks with your Rhodium community
    • All the required technical climbing gear

What’s not included:

    • Red Rock Canyon pass

There is an entrance fee for Red Rock Canyon. The cost is $15 per car or commercial vehicle — plus $5 per person. For cyclists and hikers who park at the entrance, the cost is $5 per person to enter and enjoy the park.

What about required equipment?

All technical climbing equipment will be provided by your guiding service. If you have your own gear, feel free to bring it. Your guide will provide:

    • Helmet
    • Harness with a locking carabiner, belay device, and chalk bag
    • Rock shoes (included, but we recommend bringing your own if you have them)
    • Ropes
    • Climbing hardware (quickdraws, cam devices, stoppers, etc.)

Here’s a list of the equipment we suggest you bring:

    • Day pack large enough to carry all the items listed
    • Water bottle
    • Food you can eat on-the-go
    • Toiletries (sunscreen, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
    • Sunglasses
    • Camera — optional

Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

How fit do I need to be?

If you can climb the corporate ladder, you can also climb a route! Being in good shape is always a plus but far from necessary. Rock climbing is all about using good movement technique rather than muscling up a cliff using brute strength. So don’t let your perceived lack of strength keep you away from rock climbing — you’ve got what it takes.

What if I’ve never climbed before?

For this rock climbing trip, no prior experience is necessary. Whether you’ve never donned a harness or you’re a seasoned climber, a guide will help you meet your objectives. Above all, your instructor’s number one priority is your safety. As long as you listen to the given instructions, you’ll succeed in completing your climb.

Red Rock Canyon has plenty of options for beginner climbers. Whether you’ve never climbed before or are transitioning from the gym to outdoor climbing, your guide will find a route appropriate for your skill level.

If you’re an intermediate or advanced climber, don’t worry, this trip is not just for beginners. Red Rock Canyon has loads of routes to spend the day on. Your guide will discuss your objectives and set up a more demanding route for you if necessary.

Meeting point

You’ll meet your group at 8:30 on October 16th at Vista Commons, 11720 West Charleston Blvd. From there, you’ll drive to the Canyon and hike to the climbing site. This adventure should last from 9 AM to 12 PM.
