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
DescriptionP1: Follow one of two thin cracks to gain the flaring chimney then face climb on solid rock up to a good ledge. Belay off the large flake, not bad. 5.4 120'
P2: Steep moves on great jugs launch you off the belay. Face holds continue to appear as you gain the varnished right facing corner. The corner will widen considerably and you will reach a large chockstone. Pull over the boulder and belay off your hip well over the top. 5.5 120'
LocationThe center most crack system on Fractional wall.
We utilized a walk off descent that was fairly typical down the gully behind Fractional Wall. Some 5th class. It would be possible to rap the route- P2 off the chockstone up top, and P1 off of the belay flake.
