Red Rock Canyon NCA is one of the finest rock climbing areas in the world. Hundreds of climbs are available here for all abilities of climbers, from easy 5.7 through excruciatingly difficult 5.14. Climbs vary in length from short sport climbs to multi-day pitches, requiring camping on porta-ledges on sheer faced walls. Anyone considering climbing in Red Rock Canyon should acquire a climbing guide book from a local climbing shop to get detailed route descriptions and directions to provide you a brief idea of where to find established traditional and sport routes. Many routes in Red Rock Canyon NCA require significant walking, hiking and scrambling to reach them and visitors should remember that in the Mojave, even if it is not scorching hot, the air is still very dry so water should always be carried in surplus. Bivy permits for big wall climbs are required and are available for routes on Mt. Wilson, Levitation Wall, Rainbow Wall, Bridge Mountain, Hidden Wall and the Buffalo Wall. Red Rock Canyon has so much climbing traffic that there are serious restrictions on parking, use hours and permits. All visitors should carefully check with the local ranger station at Red Rock Canyon for all rules and regulations that may pertain to activities here in order to avoid fines, towing of vehicles and other avoidable hassles.
