At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

It’s day 30 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO project. Today, we’re highlighting Red Rock Canyon outside Las Vegas, NV and SylvanSport is giving away a $100 self-inflating camping mattress! Enter to win here.

Climbing Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas, NV

The sound of slot machines and neon lights fill the air in Las Vegas, NV. Finding quiet space may seem impossible. And when you look around the only climbable objects appear to be the tall buildings in the middle of the desert. But if you head just 17 miles west, you’ll end up at Red Rock Canyon.

High-rising red rocks outside the party city of Las Vegas provide the perfect escape and climbing opportunity for the outdoor adventurer.

Climbers of all skill levels will find terrific bolted and traditional climbing routes. For those that find more joy in short climbs and powerful moves, boulders are scattered throughout the canyon.

Red Rock might be known for its rope climbs. But the boulders still offer some fun routes.

SylvanSport is giving away a $100 self-inflating camping mattress to celebrate Red Rock Canyon! Enter to win here.

Get Out and Explore Red Rock Canyon!

But maybe you want to visit Red Rock Canyon on a rest day. Here’s another great way to explore the canyon.

Aside from climbing, Red Rock Canyon is also known for its hiking. One of the best trails in Red Rock Canyon is the Las Vegas Overlook Loop. Obviously you’re rewarded with terrific views of the Vegas Strip in the distance, but you’ll also get to see the valley of the canyon from above.

Ryan, like most people, is an onion (figuratively speaking), and finds byline bios reductive, though useful. He is writing this himself in the third person, and—to him—it feels strange.
