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 route starts halfway between Ginger Cracks and Power Failure. Find the only big tree in sight and scurry up it till you can reach the 1st bolt.
P1: (130' 5.10) After the tree climb up through a right-facing corner and up left past bolts to a 2-bolt belay.
P2: (150' 5.10) Up and left following bolts to a 2-bolt belay.
P3: (40' 5.10) Climb up to the big ledge via crack and face.
P4: (120' 5.10+) Follow bolts through the roof via the right-facing corner then up and right to a 2-bolt belay.
P5: (80' 5.10+) Steep face past bolts to a 2-bolt belay.
P6: (80' 5.10+) Up the steep face to a 2-bolt belay.
P7: (160' 5.10+) Head up and left toward the top of the pillar.
P8,9,10: (???) This route is steep and sustained and can be cleanly rapped from the top of the seventh pitch.
