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 Hop Route is found on the left side of the wall and starts one of two ways: 1) In the prominent right-facing corner system (5.7+) or 2) in a nice looking hand crack (5.7) fifteen feet to the right of the corner that sort of arches up and left to join the corner. Either way, climb up to the top of the corner where there are some chockstones. You can rap from here off slings (most do), or continue up another couple pitches via cracks. If you do this, descent is supposed to be walk off towards the road.
