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).
Top section is white limestrone, and it's the second (or third?) highest peak in Calico Hills proper.
. . . (more info see on SummitPost).
Some possible climbing routes:
- WSW face - from near the tank - (see variation on SummitPost.org)
- SSW face - from near Calico / Tank Pass.
- traverse from Red Cap from NW - (more difficult and trickier than it looks).
Quickest way is from Sandstone Quarry using the Calico Tanks trail for approach, then scrambing to the summit from the southwest or west.
