REI in Summerlin has opened (921 Rampart). It's about the same size as the store in Green Valley. I heard there are giveaways during this weekend, but did not see any when I was there. I also did not see any items on sale.
Sloan Canyon, south of Vegas, is closed to motorized vehicles. I believe this is because of the dust ordinance. Dana and I tried to drive her Jeep into the gullies behind Black Mountain from Henderson, but could not find any access. We did find access via the dry lake off of Highway 93.
On Friday, Dana and I drove out to Castle Peaks and climbed the second pinnacle from the left. It's a wild route with one very exposed and tricky climb. Due to the long drive, short hike, and loose rock, it's not a route many will do; however, I will post it to the Member's section of this web site next week.
