A Karmic History of Rebirth and Suffering

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).
"Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it." And if you choose to climb here, you might be doomed anyhow…
1) Start in a claustrophobic alcove. Climb the parallel cracks to the slot of sky; squeeze to liberation. Continue up the crack in the corner. Pull over a chockstone (rope drag happens here) and step to the back of a sandy corridor. Chimney and jam up the sandy slot; once free, up to a belay in an alcove on the right. 120’
2) Follow the crack/corner up, into, and through the overhang, then past a bomb bay chimney to a spacious ledge with large blocks. 100’
Starts in an alcove with parallel cracks that lead up to a slice of sky.
Normal rack, green alien to #5 camalot; extra #3 & #4 Camalots.
