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 right end of The Cactus Massacre Wall, go up the wide drainage, pass under "The Sun Dial Wall", dark wall on right side of drainage. 75'-100' further up the drainage the "Hide and Seek Wall" will appear on the left.
Dog Friendly Approach: An easier approach, yet it is slightly longer.
From the right end of the Cactus Massacre Wall, walk climbers right past the drainage up a short slope, as if heading to the Civilization Wall, at the top of the slope, continue up and left, as if heading for the "Climb Bomb" or "Universal City" area. Keep traversing left, (and up) until you are able to see the right end of the Cactus Massacre Wall, the route "End of the Cactus", and the Hide and Seek Wall. To the right, (slightly below Universal City) there is a ramp that leads to the base of the Hide and Seek Wall
