Red Rock Canyon, Nevada (round 2)

Although we already visited Red Rocks last November, we decided to go back for a second visit.  With so many routes to choose from it is easy to come back repeatedly to this beautiful sandstone paradise.  This time a number of our friends from Boston also happened to be making their spring visits.  So we reconnected and had a great time doing fun climbing with good friends.
