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).
Climb the bigger crack 15' to the right of the finger crack to the anchor shared with Doin' the Good Drive and Car Talk.
There are a number of intimidating sections but if you look around there are good feet to progress through them. There are a couple off-width moves to get through the lower-mid pods however, is mostly hands.
The crux is the top varnished section where you have to get onto the face with limited gear. The crack is flaring below and within this thinner section which makes it feel more heady than it actually is.
