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).
P1: climb a dirty chimney system to a nice crack and face. Belay at slings on a ledge.
P2: traverse left across huge holes and jugs and pull the roof at the left end through a crack. Continue up staying fairly close to the lefthand arete for quite a long ways to a single bolt and fixed wire belay.
P3: continue straight up for a long pitch of face climbing. Belay at the very top of a buttress.
The raps begin just right of and below the belay at the top of the buttress. This is on the (climber's) left wall of the gully/chimney system. Rap down this chimney to the ground - make sure you have two ropes.
