Las Vegas Rock - Spring 2011

Photos by Andy Mann- Jonathan Siegrist: While many vacations to Las Vegas are characterized by wicked tales of debauchery that end with rehabilitating hangovers, an unwanted marriage, or bankruptcy, I envisioned something a little different for my season-long retreat to Sin City. I needed a things that my hometown of Boulder, Colorado, simply couldn't deliver in the winter months: reliable sunshine and some of the best modern sport climbing in the nation.
