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 2: Continue up the corner above, passing two protection bolts, until you can tunnel up underneath the arch (5.9). Belay on a good ledge that is halfway up the second pitch of Solar Slab.
Pitch 3: Climb up and right about twenty feet to reach the bottom of a clean finger crack. Follow this straight up (5.9) for a long pitch to the belay station at the top of Solar Slab's pitch 3. (The upper part of this pitch has been used as a variation to Solar Slab, sometimes unintentionally.)
From this point, you can continue to the top on Solar Slab, or rappel using bolted rap stations.
