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 location of this climb is obvious. It more or less climbs the giant left facing dihedral, aka The Great Red Book...
P1 (5.8): Climb up past a few vegetated ledges and work over into the corner proper for about 10-15 ft. When the crack becomes too thin, head back out onto the face and up to the bolted anchor where a memorial for Randall has been scratched into the rock (technically this is a chipped route :)
P2 (5.8 PG): Climb up the face on small edges past 2 bolts and lieback around the OW in the corner. Shoot for the top via the face or chimney.
Descend by heading left and working your way down and back around the wall.
