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
DescriptionFrom Pending Disaster make your way down to the wash and follow it west towards first pullout for @400m. You will see the obvious flat orange wall and pretty crack @25m up the hill on your right. As you pass the large boulders in the wash head up the hill to the base of the wall. The line takes the most direct route up the face. Both lines to the right and left have gone as well.
The gear is pretty straight forward: med stoppers, small cams( green c3-.75 bd), cams(#1-#3bd) and a few extendable runners. Chain anchors on top. It is possible to TR, but the chains are low. So, you may want to build an anchor to get to them.
Be safe, have fun and enjoy this fun crack climb!! Thanks Trundlebum for sharing this route with me!!
