Red Rock, Bad Weather, and Sales!


The snow is melting at Red Rock, but the major peaks all have lots of snow currently. For the most part Calico Hills is snow free. We have several routes out of Calico Basin you can do right now. These include:

Calico Loop * Calico Traverse * Kraft Mountain Loop * Kraft Mountain Up and Over * Kraft Mountain Up and Across * Calico Tank Peak East Face * Calico Tank Peak Red and White Rock * Twin Tanks * Turtlehead Junior Double Slot Route
All of the above routes are in the Member's Only Section of Hiking Las Vegas.com
SALE: One year membership for only $35. You save $15! Normally it's $50.

I don't hike in bad weather, especially wind. At the best it's aggravating; at worse it's dangerous. I have seen hikers almost blown off cliffs, you can't hear each other, and the dust and dirt find its way into your eyes. There are too many nice days in Vegas to hike in that junk.

I am cleaning out my house and selling everything from furniture to software. If the item below has a link, it's to a website that has information about the item. I am asking less than the price listed on the various web sites. Here's a small list of items:
