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).
To approach: 20' to the right of Return of the Jedi is a wide crack in a corner. Climb this until you can step right past some very loose rock to a wider crack/chimney. Continue up to a big comfy ledge. 120' 5.8. From the ledge, scramble around the big bush on the left and continue up two parallel cracks (FUN). Exit right onto another big ledge with boulders. 80' 5.7. From this ledge, scramble around the corner to the right and up a couple bushy steps to the base of the obvious beautiful crack. 150' 4th class.
Decent: Scramble and down climb the gully to the right until forced to rappel. It's 80' off of a chockstone back to the base of the crack. Scramble back down to the top of the approach pitches and do one 200' rappel back to the ground. This rappel anchor needs some work.
