Red Rocks Rendezvous 2009

Red Rocks Rendezvous 2009...Day One Update

The Red Rocks Rendezvous, the unofficial start to the rock climbing season, is underway here in Vegas (baby!). Day One went down without a hitch, for the most part...except Team Mammut is currently down one man due to the flu. Keep your fingers crossed that the damage is limited to Dean Lords and the rest of us don't go down.

Despite this little bump in the road, the RRR is off to a great start. After a day of climbing in beautiful weather participants returned to the festival site for food, beer, music, more beer and to visit the vendor areas. The official festivities wrapped up around 10pm, but the after-hours fun and games moved to the Bonnie Springs Resort Bar and that's when the silliness kicked into high gear. Let's just say some people should NEVER be allowed to sing karaoke....ever! Regardless of the audio torture metered out by some of our friends, we survived the night and woke up to great weather today.

If you are in the Vegas area stop by the RRR and come hang with Mammut athletes Josh Wharton and Dean Lords, see a bunch of new products for this summer, score some free swag, and make some new friends. That's it for today, more to come...
