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).

Walk off following hiker cairns with 1 short 30 foot rap off tree with yellow sling shortly after leaving summit of buttress. Trend north and east into the upper reaches of the wash. Some wash scrub brush shwacking and easy downclimbing leads back to the lower wash. Does not quite pass by the start, but would be a short hike back up to the base to retrieve stashed gear. Took us 3 hours from summit to hike back to car.
