A Climber's Map for Red Rock Canyon, NV: Crag Summaries, Approaches, and Walkoffs
Ogden, UT - October 9, 2017
Red Rock Canyon, NV is notorious for two things – awesome climbing and getting lost looking for or getting off climbs.
Climb-On Maps is getting ready to release their new map, A Climber’s Map for Red Rock, NV: Crag Summaries Approaches and Walk-Offs. Climb-On Maps is offering early-bird pricing until October 20, 2017 for the public at http://www.climbonmaps.com/buy.html. Retail stores interested in selling the map are being offered deeper early bird wholesale discounts until October 31, 2017. Wholesale terms and conditions can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
The Red Rock Canyon map is unique and incredibly detailed. There are 64, 8.5” x 11” (32, 2-sided) pages printed on waterproof tear-proof paper.
These maps are visually beautiful and complement existing guidebooks and Mountain Project by picking up where these other great resources leave off – detailed directions for how to get to or off of a climb. Climb-On Maps provides accurate information and impressive visual displays about crag approaches and non-rappel walk-offs.
The maps include:
+ Color coded border tab to easily identify an area (e.g. Calico 1, Calico 2, etc.);
+ An alphabetized crag finder allowing quick location of crags and page numbers;
+ The difficulty level of all trails to climbing walls and common climb walk-offs;
+ Locations of exposure and the potential severity of injury should a fall occur;
+ Labeled (from-the-ground) orientation photos to assist with navigation at points of confusion;
+ Comprehensive route statistics for each wall showing the total number of climbs, distribution of sport/traditional/top rope, distribution of route grade, and number of aid and multi-pitch climbs at a wall.
These maps not only help climbers get to their destination faster they can be used to help plan a climbing day.
For example, users can easily determine at a glance if a location has several nearby walls with the type of climbs they want. If they feel like climbing moderate sport routes, they look for yellow and blue circles. If they want easy, trad, multi-pitch, they look for green and orange circles with purple table. To plan a multi-pitch climb, users can look at the approach and walk-off distance and difficulty, as well as levels of exposure.
These maps complement area guidebooks and Mountain Project. For example, if Mountain Project uses one name for a wall and local guidebooks use another, both names are listed. In addition, route data for a wall has been compiled from all currently available sources. If Mountain Project lists 4 climbs at a wall and the guidebooks have an additional 5 climbs, Climb-On Maps shows there are 9 different climbs on that wall. It is the most comprehensive route statistics available.
ABOUT CLIMB-ON MAPS
Climb-On Maps was started by husband-wife team Stefani Dawn and Rick Momsen. To date, Rick and Stef have walked upwards of 1300 miles, some of which was quite dangerous, to collect the data for these maps. Getting boots-on-the-ground data is the only way to make a map like this.
Rick is a “mapping expert,” with nearly 20 years in the mapping industry as a Geographic Information Specialist (GIS). Rick is responsible for translating the GPS and terrain data into an attractive, visually intuitive, and usable map.
Stefani is the “Jack-of-all-trades” for the company, managing the business side, the website, social media, as well as identifying and labeling photos, and creating the crag summaries for the map.
Rick and Stef have each been climbing for over 10 years. The impetus for Climb-On Maps was the ongoing frustration of wasted time looking for climbs while on a limited vacation, and then being side-swiped by a walk-off that was more strenuous and terrifying than the 800’ climb they just completed. Because climbing is their passion and they want to help other climbers have awesome climbing experiences, they began Climb-On Maps.
