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 - 70' 5.7 Climb a left-facing corner to a bushy ledge, traverse right along the ledge and belay.
Pitch 2 - 100' 5.7 Climb onto the top of the pillar, zig zagging up ramp until it is possible to trend up and right across the face and belay above a big corner.
Pitch 3 - 80' 5.7 Climb the crack above to a belay in the base of a loose chimney. (bring wide gear or belay off slung block)
Pitch 4 - 140' 5.7 Continue up the chimney, and when it opens up climb the right facing corner above and the face to its right to reach a belay.
Pitch 5 - 110' 5.7 Climb the right facing corner above to a large ledge. Scramble up and right finishing at the top of Olive Oil.
