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).
Bottoms Up is the well-defined left-facing corner, and disjoint cracks, located on the right side of Gnat Man Crag. Negotiate a tricky start in the clean corner, then head up the classic crack, place some good pro below the bulge and head left and up to the next crack. Follow the 2nd crack as it angles right to the two-bolt anchor.
The bulge is definitely the mental crux, because there isn't any pro until you reach the 2nd crack.
The height of the bolt anchors is about 27 meters, so a 60m rope is sufficient.
Descent: Rappel from the bolted anchor. If this anchor goes missing, head right/west until you find easy 3rd class terrain to scramble back to the valley floor.
