Hey All
I'm going to be in Vegas at the end of the month for a conference and will have a day or two to go out and scramble around Red Rocks. Do any of you have suggestions for routes that don't require any gear (I will have shoes and a chalk bag). I've climbed at RR a few times, so I know the basic layout of the park. I'm just looking to get outside, get a workout and have some fun, so even cool hikes that you know of would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Bridge Mountain. Best hike in RR, imho. Natural Arch, 4th class scrambling, longish approach if you don't have a good 4wheel drive. Highest point in RR. Great views of Pine Creek Canyon from above.

yes, Bridge Mt is a lot of fun. Make sure you get some good beta for the trail (available at the visitor center or check out the book,"Hiking Las Vegas" at the library.)

Agreed, Bridge Mountain is the best hike/scramble in Red Rock. Google Branch Whitney's "Hiking Las Vegas". He has great route descriptions and pics. Think he charges a couple of bucks for the routes on his page, but well worth it. Also consider Juniper Peak, another fun scramble and considerbly shorter than Bridge. Start early morning at sunrise to avoid scorching temps and sun.

FYI- Bridge Mtn is not the highest point in RR. That would be Mt. Wilson.
