    I'm not sure if this belongs in this category, but scrambling is presumably entertainment! A couple of weeks ago, I scrambled up Oak Creek Canyon (within Red Rock Canyon NCA). The left fork is a little easier than the right fork -- in particular, the left fork waterfalls aren't as intimidating to climb as one of those on the right fork.

    If you have the requisite physical ability, and lack of common sense, I'd highly recommend this scramble -- and would also highly recommend Neil Sobelson of Hike This! as a guide.

    For all the gory details, see: http://home.comcast.net/~lgott3141/Travel_LV_TripReport_2012_September-RedRock-OakCreekCanyonLeftForkScramble.html.

    Larry, have you done any scrambling in Valley of Fire? If not, give it a look.

    mark, I've done a few scrambles at VOF - all in the Fire Canyon area. One of my less flattering photos comes from there: [​IMG]
    The guy I was with thought it was hilarious, and kept telling me not to move, so he could get a picture.
