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).
name is from Courtney Purcell's print guidebook, Rambles & Scrambles.
. . (also known as "Point 4608").
So far we know of these main routes:
* West side (from Second Pullout parking):
. . . (perhaps easiest, and likely useful as descent).
* SouthEast gully + face (from Assisi Rd or Sandstone Rd parking):
. . . (also useful as a descent, lots of interesting scrambling, gets more difficult higher up).
* NorthWest Ridges (from Frostie Shack Pass).
* NorthWest gully + ridge (from the Middle Sand Flat):
. . . (sustained exposed lower section leads to fun ridge).
* South gully + ridge (from Stairmaster Pass):
. . . (at least one difficult crux sequence, lots of interesting scrambling).
* Red Book Ridge traverse (from Stairmaster Pass to Frostie Shack Pass)
. . . (Link-Up? could be preceded by traverse of the Calico South Ridge).
The Courtney Purcell book suggests a SouthEast ridge route. We're not sure of the details - ? perhaps it is a (better) variation of the ESE gully route?
Which trailhead parking depends on which route. See list of trailheads on the Area description for Calico Peaks
This peak is about
+620 vertical feet over 0.4 mile distance from the 2nd Pull-out parking (N36.1518 W115.4374) on the Scenic Loop road;
