Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet.
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 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).
This route climbs an obvious deep cleft on the far left side of the Brass wall - starting in a cave, exiting the cave by climbing left to right and squeezing out to the outer corner and ascending clean solid rock to a 2 bolt belay 100 feet up. It goes at about 5.8 and is a worthy single pitch route for the grade. The pitch beyond the belay going up and right across the featured rock is loose, dangerous and not worth doing ever again. We abandoned it after about 50 or 60 feet. Other options for a complete direct start look to be possible a bit further to the right.
This route sits on the left side of the Brass wall, to the left of Birdland and Hidden Persuaders. It sits immediately below and slightly left of the second pitch of Hidden Persuaders in a deep cleft - starting in a cave / tunnel and exiting out into the corner about 30 feet up.
Standard selection of cams from a size 4 Camelot at the bottom to small cams and wires in the crack above.
