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).
P1: 5.11a Climb a thin, flaring finger crack on varnished rock to a series of R-facing flakes and pillars. Continue the crack up on questionable rock to reach a comfortable alcove with a 2-bolt anchor. 140 ft.
P2: 5.7 Stem and chimney up a right-facing corner to a low angle slab. Stop at anchors. 100 ft.
P3: 5.11b Meander up and left to a thin crack on varnished rock. The crack you are looking for is formed by two very shallow corners that face each other about 2 ft apart. Climb up these corners, reaching a wide, R-facing flake system. Belay at anchors before it ends. 130 ft.
P4: 5.8R Step back left to the wide crack, step left again when it ends and continue up the well featured face on questionable holds. Pro is good when available. A 4 friend fits well in a pocket midway up. 120 ft.
P5: 5.10c Continue up, past a few bushy ledges, eventually gaining a R-facing, rotten corner. Follow this corner until it begins to widen, and belay at bolts L of the crack. 110 ft.
P6: 5.11d Take on the roof above you by following the crack as it widens to a chimney, then back down to 4-5". Milk a good rest before taking on the roof, which is 1.5" for a few feet, then widens to hands. Finally, pull around the roof and find the good stance before clipping the anchors. 50 ft.
P7: 5.9 Keep climbing up the corner to a ledge, then traverse right to a L-facing corner and up to another ledge. 120 ft.
