My buddy and I are going to be in NV for a race next month. We're staying in Summerlin and would like to check out Red Rock the day after.
We'll likely be pretty worn out, so looking for some moderate/easy routes we can top rope just to check the place out.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
We don't mind hiking, if that will get us away from the crowds. Smile

Honestly, I can't think of hardly anywhere in Red Rock that has easy toproping. Most everything has anchors part way up the wall, and no easy cliff top access. The one place I can think of would be Moderate Mecca, but the climbing really isn't all that great there.

Cannibal crag in Calico. You can walk to the top from the south. It has bolts on top and you can rap to any one of the anchors around the edges. Routes from 5.7 to 5.12. Continuing up to the west past Cannibal are some cliffs with easy access to the top.
