Save Red Rocks

Unless you’ve been under a rock recently, you likely know about the development that is threatening the beauty of Red Rocks. Tomorrow is the Clark County Commissioners meeting at which they will be deciding whether to approve or deny the concept plan for high density development on the mountain in the middle of Red Rock. This could several alter the character of this incredible place. I have many wonderful memories of being high on a route in the canyons, and I hope to continue adding to them when this proposal gets blocked.

From the website, here’s what you can do to help, if you haven’t already:

1. Sign the Petition

2. Contact the commissioners: just write a short note asking them to PLEASE KEEP RED ROCK RURAL!


Phone: 455-3500

Fax: 455-3271

3. Attend the Clark County Commissioner’s hearing:
AUGUST 17, 9:00 a.m.
Wear Red for Red Rock.
Clark County Government Building
500 S. Grand Central Pkwy, LV, NV 89155
You can RSVP on Facebook

4. Spread the word!

Hopefully our voices will be heard and the county commissioners will realize that this would negatively impact one of the most incredible climbing areas in the world!
