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).
In the center of the Tuna and Chips wall there is a small tower with a crack/groove on each side. 'Tuna Cookies' is on the left and 'Waterstreak' is on the right. Walk up the left side and start Tuna Cookies.
Just left of the left side of this pillar, spot a bolt perhaps 10 meters up. Make your way to this bolt and continue beyond, passing another bolt and eventually reaching the top of the pillar and the groove above it. Continue climbing up the groove on easy moves to reach the summit of the right side of the Tuna and Chips Wall and belay.
To walk off, go back and to the right and scramble down (5.0).
Like Tuna and Chips, this is a fun line and will provide good climbing for a party competent to lead it.
