April 21-April 27, 2019

Ever wanted to experience the legendary climbing area Red Rock but couldn’t find the best time to go, the right partners, or the motivation to put together the logistics? Here’s your opportunity.
Join AAC’s CEO Phil Powers, AAC Education Coordinator Azissa Singh, and your fellow Club members in Red Rock, Nevada.  

Red Rock is famous for its great weather, incredible canyons that offer multi-pitch from moderate to hard, fun sport climbing, bouldering, beautiful scenery, and easy accessibility. Come join us for an experience of a lifetime.

BASE CAMP Includes:

  • Seven nights lodging within a 20 minute drive to Red Rock Park  

  • Breakfast and lunch fixings

  • Libations  

  • Group climbing and orientation

  • Daily top ropes on single pitch climbs

  • Discount on local guide services with Jackson Hole Mountain Guides


We have rented a huge, deluxe Air BNB 5 bedroom Las Vegas home with internet, cable, washer dryer, laptop friendly workspace, patio, BBQ, modern kitchen, and other essentials. Five large bedrooms have multiple beds so expect to share a room. Stay for all seven days, or come for any part of the week! The house is located 20 minutes to the entrance of Red Rock park. There are multiple grocery stores, restaurants, and other shopping opportunities within five minutes of our location.

We will stock the kitchen with breakfast and lunch fixings, and drinks ranging from mineral water to alcohol.

April 21 – Arrive, check in at any time after 3pm. If you are celebrating Easter at home you can arrive on April 22 or any day after—this is a base camp for your convenience!

April 22* - Participants are welcome to join on a single pitch orientation day. Get your limbs warmed up, meet others in the group, and get some good beta on the layout of the park and the different climbing sectors. We’ll host a group dinner Monday night

April 23 – 26- Daily top ropes on single pitch climbs. Where we go will depend on weather factors. As this is a BASE CAMP package, you are free to get out and have an adventure with other participants.

*Your hosts for the 22nd through 26th will be experienced climbers from the AAC staff, but will not be professional guides.

Do you have a long route in mind, want to learn more about lead climbing, or just have a great day with a guide out on some single pitch terrain? We have partnered with Jackson Hole Mountain Guides-Red Rock to provide a discount on guided outings. We can also arrange clinics with JHMG if a group has certain skills they are interested in learning.
