DescriptionA Tall, vertical wall situated between the first two pullouts. The climbing can be slightly fragile in places, but provides some rewarding challenges during the colder months. South facing.
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 ThereTwo approaches:
1)Approach as for Tsunami Wall, and about fifty yards before arrival, break up through a small cliff band to the north. Scramble up blocks and some sand to the base.
2) Approach as for Iron Man Wall (1st Pullout), and instead of making the final short scramble to the base, continue along the break, go over a tiny ridge, and down-scramble to the base of Trundle.
