DescriptionThis is a short, fun little cliff for those not up to Cannabis' steepness. There are two very good routes here- Hand Drilled Heaven and Turkey Trot. The other two dont look as appealing.
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 TherePark in Calico at the end near the cul-de-sac and head for the boulders, taking a right and following it around past Monkey Bars, eventually dropping into the wash. Follow this for a ways, passing Conundrum and keeping an eye up and right for the cliff. The cliff sits high and right out of the wash, about 100 yards or so before Cannabis.
