RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details
Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN RED ROCKS during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby. ***** HUMAN WASTE ***** Human waste is one of the major issues plaguing Red Rocks. The Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council identified this problem years ago and has worked to provide "wag bags" free of charge 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 areas). This project was funded primarily by the American Alpine Club
DescriptionThis route was originally done in 1998, but for some reason never found itself in a guidebook.
"Stuffed Animals on Prozac" can be found directly across from Olive Oil. Approach as you would for Olive Oil, but take the first real trail to the left as you enter the canyon. Skirt the base of the cliff to bottom of the route on Jackrabbit Buttress.
Once you are at the base of the route, you will see a line of bolts that leads into a crack system. Climb past the bolts into the crack and continue up to the belay. The first pitch is 5.8. From the belay, follow the beautiful 5.7 crack system to the top of the second pitch. Rappel the route with double ropes.
