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
DescriptionArch Rival is a fairly large left facing corner/arch on the South side of the Burlap Buttress.
Start in the clean cut corner and layback or jam your way up the crack. Negotiate the entrance into a wide pod and find a balance between awkward and burly climbing as the crack becomes steeper. Exit the wide pod and begin traversing left with the arch. Tricky gear in unique rock with disappearing feet make this an exciting hand traverse. Follow the arch till it ends and aim for a single bolt.
Pitch Extension - Not Recommended - Continue after the bolt climbing back right and then straight up a corner and around the right arete. This upper portion has flakey rotten rock and the gear looks poor.
