Las Vegas, NV - The fourth annual “Mountain Gear Presents: Red Rock Rendezvous” rock climbing festival will return to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area near Las Vegas on March 23-25, 2007, to benefit The Access Fund and other local and national non-profit organizations. Due to the growing popularity of the festival, this year's event has expanded clinic areas to offer more traditional, sport and aid climbing sites and routes than the prior Red Rock festivals.

The festival will again offer a Friday “Intro to Climbing at the Red Rocks” clinic day for less experienced climbers and those who have never attempted the difficulty levels of the Red Rock Canyon. The full-day “intro” clinics will teach climbing fundamentals to succeed at the Red Rocks and any other outdoor setting. The clinics will take place in an intimate clinic setting by guides from the American Alpine Institute who are also some of the world's most accomplished climbers. “Intro” participants will then be able to enjoy two additional half-day clinics throughout the weekend. There will also be an optional gear package that will include harness, helmet, shoes, belay device, carabineer, chalk bag and a membership to the Access Fund. Participants can get the gear package, the Friday “Intro” day, two additional half-day clinics and event festivities for $349.

The festival will also offer clinics for advanced, intermediate and beginning climbers on Saturday and Sunday. Registration is $75 per person for the Saturday and Sunday events, and $239 per person for the Friday “Intro” day and Saturday and Sunday clinic combo. Registration includes the Friday night opening celebration, free climbing at Red Rock Canyon when not in formal clinics, a dinner buffet on Saturday night, demos, comps and mini-seminars by event sponsors, a blow-out party and slide show on Saturday night, pancake breakfast Sunday morning and service projects to assist in the environmental conservation of the Red Rock Canyon and Spring Mountain. For only $35, participants can receive access to all of the Spring Mountain festivities.

More than 400 climbers throughout the nation are anticipated to attend the 2007 event. The different crag areas identified for clinic sites feature a selection of some of the best climbing areas in Red Rock Canyon and will feature bolted sport climbing, multi-pitch traditional routes, big wall techniques and bouldering problems for all climbing levels.

The Access Fund, one of the beneficiaries for The Red Rock Rendezvous, is a national non-profit organization dedicated to keeping climbing areas open and conserving the climbing environment. Other non-profits include the American Safe Climbing Association, the American Alpine Club, Friends of Red Rocks and the Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council.

All of the festival activities outside of the climbing clinics will take place at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park located approximately 10 minutes from the entrance to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.
