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).
This route would not be considered a classic by most people but I enjoyed it very much because of the very old school trad feel, the vertical very exposed climbing, and the need to really trust that "there really will be holds and gear up there". I only gave it one star despite the excellent climbing on the upper face because of the looseness of the lower section and the lack of distinct line.
