DescriptionA small, east-facing shady wall in a narrow gully that is home to three routes. Further up the hill is a fourth route - a steep, leaning 5.12+
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 ThereFrom the parking lot descend to the Grand Circle trail and follow this east towards the First Pullout. After a few hundred yards (a little ways past the Magic Bus which is high above and now behind you slightly), look for a jumbled gully off to your left. Descend down to and across the wash and back up towards the gully which narrows and funnels you directly to the base of the wall.
One can continue easily past these routes up to the Magic Bus or California 12a.
