Red Rock Canyon

November 19, 2016

LAOC and Terraloco are partnering to provide two days of orienteering excitement at Red Rock Canyon State Park north of Mojave.

LAOC will be hosting Saturday's courses. This is a COOL event and will feature point-to-point courses. The terrain is rocky, sandy, and sparsely vegetated with extremely high visibility. The map will be modified USGS printed at 1:10,000 scale with 20 foot contours and formlines added as necessary.

Footwear with decent traction is highly recommended. The hills are hardpacked with small rocks, which can be quite slippery, even when it's not that steep. I saw only a very small number of cactus, including one or two cholla. Very easy vegetation to run through. There will be at least one water stop on all advanced courses (Orange and up).

On Sunday, terraloco is hosting their Go Wild! Red Rock event. 3 hr and 6 hr adventure courses will be offered. This event is part of the Nav-X Challenge adventure series.

Registration for Sunday and information on camping is available on the terraloco event page
