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).
Pitch 1: Start in a small dihedral and follow mostly easy rock to a belay stance on the left.
Pitch 2: Move left into the main corner. Belay on a ledge with a small tree that is halfway up to the roof.
Pitch 3: Handjam past one tricky spot (5.8) to the roof. Step right and continue up the easier but wider crack.
Pitches 4 & 5: Routefind your way to the top.
Descent: cross south to the main gully and descend as for Frogland.
