Red Rocks Two

After our "rest" day, we headed back out climbing. First day we went to "The Hamlet" at the first pullout and did a bunch more sport routes. Second day we got a little more ambitious and did Olive Oil - a 5 pitch, 600 foot, 5.7 trad route. Third day we went back to the first pullout and climbed on Panty Wall and Civilization Crag, finishing on a couple of 5.10's which is about as hard as we wanted to climb by that point. Both of us were feeling a little worn out after six days of climbing.

Our La Quinta was full on Friday night - Valentine's Day and a long weekend here - so we moved to the Red Rock Hotel and Casino. It's the closest hotel to the climbing, except there was a police shooting that closed down the highway and meant we had to make a 20 mile detour! Of course, all the restaurants were totally booked, but we managed to get a table in the pub type place with only a 45 minute wait. And, being Vegas, we could carry a glass of wine from the restaurant back to our room.
