Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet.
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 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).
If your in the area don't miss this one! Up and left of Winter Heat off a high ledge. Follow a beautiful short thin hands then over a roof (left side) up black polished ramp (small aliens or brassies needed) Shares same anchor as Winter Heat.
History: According to Wendall Broussard aka “The Dean of Red Rock,” both “Couldn’t be Schmooter“ and “High Class Ho” are both named after a French craps dealer that worked at Caesar's Palace in the 1980’s. When pretty women would walk by he would mutter to Wendell in a heavy french accent, “Now that’s a High Class Ho.” One day Wendall and Paul VB were exploring beyond Kraft mountain when they ran into an old friend Randall Grandstaff. Grandstaff known for tall tales, asked Wendall what they were doing so far back; “We’re looking for routes” Wendall said, “well there are none back there” said Grandstaff. Wendall and Paul both looked at each other and knew that they about to strike gold.
