HUMAN WASTE Human waste is one of the major issues plaguing Red Rocks. The Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council and the AAC provides free "wag bags" 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 area).
The Wall of Death is like that movie, The Ring. If you look at it - even from the parking lot - you'll probably die...someday. This place is sketchier than a 20-year-old bro trying to "teach" his girlfriend how to climb. I mean, it's even sketchier than some of the advice given in the forum section of this website...
So what' I'm saying is don't go here... You'll be scared the whole time and it will scar you for life.
Aside from that, here's some beta:
This is a west facing crag in the Calico Hills. The belays for the right-hand side of the crag are shaded by a giant fin of rock (that will probably topple over and kill everyone in Las Vegas some day).
The rock is mostly good. It will continue to clean up as more people climb at the area. But it's unlikely anyone will ever come here, because this is the WALL OF DEATH.
If there were ever any kind of helicopter or plane crash at Ultraman, all the debris would fall down on top of you at the Wall of Death...because it's just that kind of place...
If you can figure out how to get to the Wall of Death, it will take about 15-minutes. If you can't, you might end up on Epinephrine by accident. That would be a really big mistake, and it would take a really long time to walk there from the First Pullout...
