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).
Fun little route that follows up the back side of Civilization. Can face climb with ample protectability, or slot yourself into a series of three chimney/small hands cracks. Not worth a hike in for, but if in the area and itching for a lil crack action, may be worth hitting up. Definitely must have been others who have done it before, but adding it because it's such a perfect moderate route with already placed chains for easy rap.
NOTE* This route needs quite a bit of TLC and cleaning. Lots of fragile rock, be careful and mindful of rock quality for protection.
From civilization wall, walk around right of the prominent arête. Follow the first moderate crack on the left that starts in a small chimney or follow up the cruiser seam on the slab on the right to enter the crack above the chimney.
Standard rack to #4 C4. End at a juicy belay ledge that eats up small cams for anchor. The belay ledge sits directly above Conquistador, so can easily rap off of those rings which are within arms reach from belay ledge.
