What I've got in my imagination is a big classic trad route on a desert tower or in a canyon, say between 5.8 and low ...

UT or NM in Late March

I am looking to take a trip to NM or UT at the end of March or early April with my wife and dog. Looking for a mellow, fun desert experience. Weather permitting, we intend to camp. I anticipate it could get pretty cold at night.

We are looking for some combination of easy climbs, bike rides, bouldering opportunities, hikes where we might be able to see some ruins and/or rock art, maybe a nice ...

Kings Peak Area Conditions/Traffic

Looking at heading out in a few weeks from Colorado - first experience in Utah We're planning on spending 8-days camped in the Henry's Fork area going after the 13ers around there. I've been told we need to plan on parking about 5 miles short of the TH - is that accurate? I've seen several TRs from winter, but how much traffic does the area actually see? (Are we breaking trail or is there a ...

Prime season for Red Rocks!

Some of my all time favorite routes:

Running Man 5.11 A classic single pitch climb. Lots of sport climbs in the area, but this ain't one of 'em :wink:

Red Rocks climbing tip #1) Any route with the name Paul Van Betten, Sal Mumusia, or Mike Ward in the first ascent credits, will probably be a serious lead. These guys were some ...

Attention fellow desert rats: I need some info...

Hey y'all, I'm looking for some suggestions. Moab's been too cold this winter, so I'm heading south for a few weeks to do some backpacking.

If anyone has ideas on hikes/summits in this general area, that would be cool: Yuma, AZ; Blythe, CA; basically anywhere between I-40 and I-8.

I've done the whole Kofa thing. I like that there's not much info about these ranges (solitude!), but I figured there could be some hardcore desert ...
