HUMAN WASTE Human waste is one of the major issues plaguing Red Rocks. The Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council and the AAC provides free "wag bags" in several locations (Black Velvet, First Pullout, Kraft Mtn/Bouldering, The Gallery, and The Black Corridor). These bags are designed so that you can pack your waste out - consider bringing one to be part of your kit (just like your rope and shoes and lunch) no matter where you go. Once used, please dispose of them properly (do not throw them in the toilets at the parking area).
The Brass Wall gets good daytime sun in the winter, the dark hard patina over the smooth rock gives it a bright glare in the strong light, and also forms the crags character, smooth, solid, and pleasant overall. A few dirtier lines and broken juggy climbs are also to be found however. The routes there are mostly easy to moderate and all of them are trad, with fixed rap stations. A few hard lines are present as well.
The best lines I did on this wall were Heavy Spider Karma (5.6), Topless Twins (5.9) and Mushroom People (5.10+).
Once here, the nearby Straight Shooter Wall offers a few more route opportunities with mostly 5.11 grades, and a few sport routes.
To the left of this gully is the Brass Wall, and to the right is Straight-Shooter Wall. Instead of battling through the red band, skirt its edge to either end (preferably right) and them make your way left to the Brass Wall. The climbs The Bus Stops Here, Mushroom People and Topless Twins should be visible as you approach.
