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

P1: Climb the left leaning crack to a spacious ledge.
P2: Take the ramp above the belay to the right; squeeze to the top of the pillar; step back across to the main face and ramp back up left; marvel at the various rappel follies from previous eras. At the end of the ramp, head up the corner/crack. At a spacious platform, traverse hard left and step across to the Gigglenut Rampage launching pad.
P3: Up the crack/corner above the step-across; from ledges, up the middle crack (left of & facing the obvious chimney on the right).
P4: Continue up the crack to join Geronimo/Crazy Horse at mid-height.
