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
DescriptionThe refrigerator wall is true to its name and is a cool respite even on hot days in Vegas. The climbing on this route is great but this route should only be attempted by a confident 5.10 leader.
Begin on a a small ramp on the left side of the wall. This route requires some route finding and follows a series of discontinous cracks. Take pro when you get it as it is not always present. Continue up cracks and face trending rightward. The crux is on the lower part of the route but the pro will keep you interested all the way to the top. End on a nice grassy ledge with bolted anchors.
Rap with two ropes.
