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).
Begin about 50' left of Challenger at a small left-facing corner. Climb these corners and grooves to an obvious roof/undercling crack. Jam out the left side of this and work up and left on a horizontal. Gingerly mantle up to a massive flake and climb the right side of it (increasingly more solid sounding). At the top, hand traverse left and step up into an obvious right-facing corner. Protect and climb a punchy crux to a good cam in a horizontal and make one last mantle onto a ledge. Belay here or lower to the ground.
There is a second pitch (5.10a) that continues up the right-facing corner above to a wide roof with a large chockstone.
