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
DescriptionWith surprisingly good rock and 2 pretty good pitches, this route is great to do if in the 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.
LocationEven Men Out is located 200 yrds right of Lucky Nuts above a red cliff. Locate a massive crack on a varnished wall. The route starts about 20 feet to the right of the crack.
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.
