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).
Pitch 1: Start to the right of a jam crack moving left passing a bushy ledge and right after passing the ledge, belay at the next ledge. 5.5 100'
Pitch 2: Continue up a chimney and up face. Belay on another brushy ledge. 5.6 200'
Pitch 3: Move the belay left about 20'. Start in a corner and move up until you see a water streak, traverse left and follow the pro up the white rock face. Belay when the angle eases. 5.7 R 140'
Pitch 4: Fourth class it to the base of a chimney. 60'
Pitch 5: Step out to the right and climb a small corner. This pitch has a nice lieback section. Set a belay on a platform at the top of the corner. 5.7 120'
Down lead from the platform via a juggy offwidth.
After making the down climb, locate a tree with rappel slings to the right. Make a short rappel and scramble down the gully trending left to another rappel...This leads to a final rappel which deposits you about 100 yards right of the start.
