Rock Climbing in Nevada’s Red Rock Canyon

As a business professional, I co-founded GWG Holdings, Inc., a specialty finance company headquartered in Minneapolis. I serve as the company’s chief executive officer. In my leisure time, I enjoy rock climbing and recently visited the Red Rock National Conservation Area near Las Vegas, NV.

Red Rock Canyon, the first National Conservation Area in Nevada, offers some of the best rock climbing in the world. With its vast rocky crags far from any sign of civilization and populated with more desert bighorn sheep than people, the park also affords visitors an incredibly peaceful experience. Despite its isolation, Red Rock Canyon is easily accessible from Las Vegas.


Rock climbers at Red Rock Canyon can follow numerous traditional and sport routes throughout the park with assistance from the climbing staff. Several guidebooks also lay out details on routes and provide photos and directions to serve newcomers to the park, including details on the various challenges of different routes.
