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
DescriptionThis is a fun route with varied climbing. Begin in the pit with a difficult mantle move at the first bolt. Continue up a slabby section that is a bit runout to a huge overhang with several large holds that head left up through the 3rd and 4th bolts. The crux really begins at the 5th bolt where the jugs disappear and you head right on a series of small crimps up a crack system with a hard pull to a patina covered rail below the 6th bolt.
More so than most routes, this route might feel harder as an onsight attempt but eases once you have it dialed.
LocationThis route is immediately left of 'Shut Up and Climb.' It starts down in the pit and shares the first bolt with another route that heads up and left.
