Following an unlikely courtship, Jorge and Joanne Urioste arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada in the 1970s, long before it was a mecca of rock climbing in North America. When the rest of the country was focused on Yosemite Valley, the Uriostes began developing long, moderate climbs on Red Rock Canyon's impeccable sandstone, defying climbing norms and charting a new path for the sport. Their routes remain the most classic in Red Rock, drawing climbers from all over the world.
