Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet.
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 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).
Start with a beautiful slug (sloppy jug) for your left and a nice incut crimp with your right. Work up and to the right to gain a nice sidepull while the whole time you have nice but spaced out slugs to your left. Work straight up to a incut crimp right below the lip, then work left to another crimp before making an exciting move to a sloppy pinch on the upper left of the problem, one more exciting move (crux mantel)..enjoy.
Its directly up the beautiful seashell like face on the Tri-force Boulder..a boulder in the wash that is marked by the old triangle Tri-force symbol of the Zelda games...hence the name Tri-force. This faces the wash/trail to Frigid Air and its on the trail, in your face...so if u miss it, u should just go home.
A pad would be nice, however I snagged the FA without one because the large sand pit at the bottom acts as some pro.
