This guidebook describes the very best locations to go bouldering around Vegas in the state of Nevada. The Kraft Boulders at Calico Basin, located just outside the city of Las Vegas, is the main bouldering area covered in this guidebook. Also included are the sandstone areas of Red Rocks and Black Velvet Canyon, the high alpine limestone boulders at Mount Charleston, and the volcanic boulders at Big Sandy. All of these bouldering areas are less than a couple of hour’s drive of Las Vegas allowing climbers to easily visit these areas as day trips.
At the start of each area there is a location map, approach and access information, a general description of the style and aspect of the bouldering, and the best time of the year to visit. All the problems are shown on colour photo-topos along with a description. At the start of the guidebook there is information regarding the local amenities including where to stay, the best restaurants, and where the climbing shops are.
