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).
P1- (5.6) Go up a short dihedral and step left at a chockstone. Continue up past a bolt and up the face to a nice belay ledge below the chimney. It also looked possible to step into an easy chimney shortly after the bolt which leads to the same belay ledge.
P2- Enter the obvious chimney and climb up past a bolt (5.9). Exit the chimney, and head up the great dihedral above (5.9). Step left at the top to a two bolt belay.
P3- Climb up and right across the slab above (5.5 no pro) and continue up through intermittent cracks to the large terrace below Solar Slab. This pitch was a full 60m.
Either descend Solar Slab Gully from here or finish the day on Solar Slab.
