Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details


This route starts out climbing a right leaning crack (crux) and continues through some large huecos and ledges. In the Handren guidebook, this route is referred to as "Need to Rest," but Mike's original name was Idiot Parade.


This is the last route on the right side of the lower corridor, if you enter from the bottom. It is located just before the dividing boulders.


5 bolts up to new chains.

Great route but keep moving as it can be a pumpy little thing! Once you make it to the large obvious hueco you should be home free! Aug 14, 2006

I really enjoyed the moves on this route! We had no idea what it was but the big hueco looked appealing so we had to give 'er a go. The upper edges looked like they could be slopers but are quite positive. This is nice because it feels steep! The knee bar in the hueco is cool. Apr 10, 2007

Good Eye Mr. Moore! This is perhaps the best 5.10 in the Black Corridor...IMHO. This route is surprisingly pumpy for such a short climb....especially since it has a no-hands rest in the hueco. Oct 17, 2009

If you can make it to the hueco your set. the holds after are surprisingly good but that's hard to tell by looking from below. Such a fun route! May 14, 2010

Great route... make sure your feet are set and GO BIG! Great holds
higher up for those power moves, save your strength! Feb 8, 2012
Deceptively pumpy but easily one of the best routes in the Corridor (like others have said). The kneebar (or double kneebar) makes for a great no-hands rest experience for the intermediate climber Feb 26, 2012
Great climb. Pumpy, but thanks to the knee bar you can get a perfect rest... Mar 6, 2012
Ignore your gut reaction to follow the crack past the second bolt. traverse out right to large hueco, take a breath, and sprint on up. Apr 11, 2012

Super cool holds and some interesting moves to the top get you to the top. May 30, 2012

The right leaning crack at the start is difficult. Much better to go for the dyno on the large hueco. After that, it's all good holds. Feb 4, 2016

dyno variation is super fun! Nov 29, 2016
12/14/2016 ....The Southen Neveda Climbers Coalition with support from ASCA preformed some route maintenance on Idiot Parade (Aka Need to Rest). The first and fifth protection bolts were removed and replaced with Fixe SS 3/8 x 6 1/2 Glue-In Bolts. Dec 14, 2016

Honestly one of my favorite routes in the BC. Awesome sustained pump-fest. Make sure you do the dyno variation!! (not much of a dyno if you got height on your side) but never the less still fun. May 15, 2018
