Get ready for the 2014 Red Rock Rendezvous, coming March 28-30! Petzl has been a proud supporter of this event since it began in 2003. This yearly celebration of climbing and the outdoor lifestyle is held in the beautiful Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Come out for the Rendezvous and you’ll be surrounded on all sides by soaring red and tan rock formations, sagebrush, and Joshua trees, not to mention world-class route climbing and bouldering opportunities, plus plenty of trails for biking, hiking, and running. In short, it’s a rad place to be and the Red Rock Rendezvous is a great way to experience the canyon for the first time… or the fiftieth.
At this year’s event, as in the past, Petzl will bring a bunch of demo gear for you to try. The new SAMA, SELENA, ADJAMA, and LUNA harnesses, the ultralight SIROCCO helmet that everyone’s talking about, the new SPIRIT EXPRESS quickdraw, the GRIGRI 2 and REVERSO 4 belay devices, and more!
Petzl athletes will be heading up some great clinics at the event, too, including Alli Rainey, Kevin Wilkinson, and Audrey Sniezek. Petzl employees John Evans and Chuck Odette will be running the photo clinic in Calico Basin, and SLC-based yoga instructor Maggie Smith-Odette will be leading folks in their morning asanas.
Pro tip: Be sure to come by the Petzl booth early on day one of the event to get your annual Petzl / Red Rock Rendezvous coffee mug. They go super fast!
