Ascent Trip ReportDuane, Kevin, Erica, and I went part way up this one as part of Duane & my road trip to southern Utah & Vegas. We had Sadie, Kevin & Erica's dog, along with us. Red Rock NCA is awesome. We followed the route from Sandstone Quarry as described on Jim Boone's website. We ended up turning back short of our objective due to steep trail conditions that were tough on the dog. Overall, a wonderful hike regardless of whether we made the summit or not.
