DescriptionRomper Room features at least six (5.4 to 5.7+) single pitch trad routes. Descend most routes by rappelling from anchors, some descents require two ropes. This area faces north east and can get morning sun.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details
Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN RED ROCKS during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby. ***** HUMAN WASTE ***** Human waste is one of the major issues plaguing Red Rocks. The Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council identified this problem years ago and has worked to provide "wag bags" free of charge 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 areas). This project was funded primarily by the American Alpine Club
Getting ThereApproach as per Lotta Balls Wall, heading up the First Creek Canyon Trail to the mouth of the canyon where the trail forks. Take the left-hand trail that climbs the broad hillside on the south side of the canyon to the base of Lotta Balls. Once there, traverse right along the terrace, past the recessed alcove (Alcohol Wall), to the rectangular patch of black rock. This is the right end of Romper Room.
