DescriptionAn obvious, somewhat aesthetic crag that sits just inside the big alcove you trek through on your way to the Trophy. This southwest facing crag gets lots of sun (although the routes on the left may get some shade)- but due to the gully at the base, the belayer gets quite a bit of shade.
The rock here is soft- really soft, so a stick clip is highly recommended for the high first bolts.
This wall is really the lower part of the Satellite Wall, and, if the routes stay intact, can be used for a warm-up area.
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 for the Trophy- follow the signs for Turtlehead Peak until you come to a large formation on your right that has a big 'meadow' like area just inside of it with a striking sheer orange cliff inside it (this is the Drive In). Cut right into the 'meadow' and look to your right. Look for the large white buttress with the blocky orange roofs in the middle (This is Fidelity Select). Give yourself about 20 minutes to get there.
