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
DescriptionThis is an old project, #7 in the Handren book. Begins with some big moves between good, albeit sandy ledges (crag theme). A few really cool dimples, and a gym like left hand jug lead you to the first crux. Move straight right with a right knee smear on some right facing edges. From this stance work your left hand onto a heinous sloper above the lip and pounce up and right to a big flat ledge. Finish out the bullet slab.
A really fun, punchy little route. I filled in a drilled 2 finger pocket next to the sloper in the crux.
The rock quality after the first bolt or so is bomber. A worthwhile route along with several of the other rigs at this secluded shady crag.
