DescriptionBeginner sport route crag which faces north. It is shaded in the afternoon, generally around 1:00 pm. This crag is cold in the winter but nice in the warmer months. The Amusement Park is directly below and faces the Panty Wall.
If you are a beginner, you will most likely have a fun day at the Amusement Park. If you are not a beginner, you might be slightly bored.
There are 4 hook anchors shared between the 9 climbing lines. Just drop your rope into the hooks and top rope/lower off dirctly from the hooks. Each of the first three anchors from left to right are shared with 2 routes each. The fourth (farthest right) anchor has 3 climbing lines shared.
All routes are initially graded 5.7, but some might be 5.6 or 5.8. Please fill in what you think the grades are for each. Thanks and have fun!
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
