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).
Start in the corner just to the right of the steep direct start. This used to require trad gear/traversing to get to the bolts higher up but has since been fully bolted and follows a direct line all the way up. Extending some of the lower draws seemed useful but rope drag should be manageable without. A 70 meter rope will get you back down fine - and as always, please don't TR directly through the anchor. The upper bolts have permadraws as of Feb 2021.
Compared to other sport routes in RR this thing is a worthwhile saga. The sandy nature of the holds add to the overall experience, but hopefully they clean up with time.
