Enjoy a privately guided trip climbing the spectacular multi-pitch routes of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada!
Conveniently accessible from Las Vegas, the wilderness of Red Rock is a great place for those who want to escape the bright lights of the bustling Strip. Filled with impressive red rock formations and sandstone peaks, the area has some superb climbing, including some excellent Class IV Climbs. In fact, Epinephrine, Crimson Chrysalis, and Prince of Darkness, three climbs in the area, are listed in Fifty Classic Climbs of North America.
While many associate desert sandstone with crack climbing, the landscape here is actually quite varied, with faces that have many features that make for some great and interesting climbs.
During my privately guided climbing trips to Red Rock, located within Nevada's South Mountains, we will explore some of the great climbs of the area. The exact program will be tailored to your skill level and interests. With a low guide ratio, I'm happy to provide coaching and instruction to fully maximize our time together.

A Utah native, Todd grew up with a strong passion for skiing and playing in the mountains. Looking to incorporate this passion into a profession Todd attended the University of Utah and earned a bachelors degree from the Parks and Recreation department. He worked in the outdoors as a wilderness instructor teaching survival skills in the Utah desert for many years. In 2000 he began mountain guiding, and has been sharing his passion of the mountains with others ever since.
Todd’s guiding has taken him to many corners of the globe including; Alaska, Asia, Antarctica, Europe, South America and the Western U.S. He is a fully certified IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide. Other training and certifications include Avalanche level III and Wilderness First Responder.
Climbing with Todd one immediately feels a sense of safety and trust. Todd is a strong and highly competent leader with years of experience leading large expeditions and one on one guiding. He is a skillful teacher and enjoys helping folks accomplish their climbing aspirations.
Some of his notable ascents include; Denali’s Cassin Ridge, a first ascent of the 5000’ west face of Mt. Vinson in Antarctica and the Walker spur on the Grand Jorasses in the Alps.
When he is not traveling Todd enjoys spending time at home in Salt Lake City, Utah climbing and skiing the Wasatch with his wife, climbing partner and fellow guide.

I have booked the backcountry ski for 3 days and did only 1/2 - 1 day. Hiking uphill is much too exhausting for me, although I am in reasonable condition. For sure this must be much better communicated towards customers, that they need in ultimate condition. So spending 1200 USDollars and having only '1 day done' is not a great experience. Can I get some of the money back?
Todd is a very experienced guide who knows the area like the palm of his hand. He tailored a plan that adapted perfectly to the conditions and our group, and he got us to some great powder even after 1 week since the last snowfall! We had a great time and I will for sure call Todd again next year when I return to Utah!
