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).
North Shoulder rappel:
This is the "standard" exit from the top of the right side of the crag. From the large ledge area, make one short (single rope) rappel to an exposed, hanging stance from a pine tree on the wall to the north. From here, a long double rope rappel reaches third class terrain on the Lady Wilson approach. Scramble down to the notch and continue down the approach gully.
From the summit of the buttress, one can scramble west (toward the main wall) and do a short rappel to easier ground from which one can go north and join the Lady Wilson approach "path." Scramble and down climb this (following many ducks) to reach the notch at the top of the approach gully.
A slightly longer (but easier to follow) route goes up the First Creek trail for a bit under a half mile, then turns right and meets the jeep track at the four-way intersection. This can also be reached via the old Oak Creek trail. See the map photo.
