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
DescriptionSSHHHH!!! not so loud!
This is the easiest sport route at the cliff, and climbing with quiet feet my help you stay on the set, since the holds are kind of fragile, so keep it down already.
So the first bolt on this has a homemade hanger that looks like it is as thin as a piece of paper, the climbing seems to head left when the bolts head right, but this route isn't really all that bad. I wouldn't come here just for this one, but it serves as a good warm up for the cliff.
Start on the left end of the wall, and head up the arete like feature. The holds are not very obvious and the route wanders a bit. However, the unique nature of some of the holds makes this worth doing.
We also found it difficult in places to not stem across the corner to the left.
