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
DescriptionThe route was climbed on a 70m rope, so belay locations may vary.
P1-Climb up the arete of the right facing corner and pull through a roof.
P2-Follow a right angling crack to the gully on the right.
P3-Climb a crack on the buttress on the right and build a hanging belay.
P4-Continue up the crack and another hanging belay at the top of the crack.
P5-From the top of the crack work out and left to get some gear and then run it out considerably on easy terrain. Belay at tree.
P6-Continue straight up to a clean handcrack.
P7-Climb the ridgeline on the left. On the first ascent the 4th class gully straight up was climbed. It was extemely loose and dangerous.
LocationThis route lies between Sunset Slabs and Romanian Rib. Locate a right facing corner capped with a roof.
Follow the First Creek Slabs descent.
