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).
The climb is up a strange but pleasant crack and face system. While the gear is not always the best, it's good enough to be safe and the climb is pretty positive, if not outright juggy.
To locate this route, start by noting the twin splitters on the left end, 'Topless Twins' and then look slightly left to a dark crack and flake system going up and slightly left for perhaps 70 or 80' to a ledge. This is the route Heavy Spider Karma.
Climb up the route, placing pieces in the odd crack here and there until the crack widens to an offwidth. Cut back right onto the face doing an easy rising traverse to the anchors above 'Topless Twins.'
