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).
It is striking shallow left facing corner, which varies from tips to wide hands with lots of variety in between. Although rock quality is a little iffy in places, especially right off the ground (protects well with a #3 camalot) everywhere you really need it good solid pro can be found.
The anchor is OK, definatly not the best I have seen but I have also seen many worse. It could do with the bolts being replaced, and the webbing is looking a little faded. The fixed nut is bomber and there are a couple beiners to lower/rap off.
Juggernaut is no give me, the face to the left is amazingly smooth and the crack pinches down pretty tight at times. As mentioned above there is some questionable rock in places so place well and when you can get it.
A great way to end the day, often in the shade in the afternoon and is on your way out if you are up on Brownstone or Rainbow.
If you are coming from the parking lot for Pine creek the route will be on the left (south) end of the main Jack Rabbit Buttress just before you come to the Geronimo gully.
