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
DescriptionThis is a good mixed route that starts just right of Frigid Air Buttress. Climb up the face, eventually passing 4 bolts. Work up the varnished slab and pass the white roof on the left edge. Move back right passing two more bolts to a bolted anchor.
LocationBlue Bunny starts 50' to the right of the first pitch of Frigid Air Buttress.
2 ropes are required to rap off.
It looked possible to pendulum hard to the east and hit the anchors at the top of the flake on the 1st pitch of Frigid Air Buttress, making it possible to get off with one rope. I did not try this and it will take a fairly aggressive pendulum.
