Celebrating a decade of tradition this year, the Red Rock Rendezvous attracts all levels of climbers to learn everything from multi-pitching to backcountry cooking.Pros and experts in each field teach a variety of clinics.Attendees enjoy on-site camping, beer from New Belgium and other memorable events.
