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).
The numeric name comes from the fact that it is a 7 bolt 5.7, and a section of a 2x4 plank was used to assist in the anchoring while the route was bolted.
**Note: One concern is that the anchors are set back behind the top of the climb, creating a lot of friction on the rope as you lower off. For very small climbers (kids) it can be almost impossible to get enough weight on the rope to get them back to the ground, resulting in some forceful down climbing. As there are already numerous links on the chains above, the only likely solution would be to add another anchor bolt below the current anchors to reduce the rope drag.
