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
Description2 new routes to the far right of the Sweet Pain wall. They're not in Jerry Handren's guidebook, or here on mountainproject.com.
The second from the far right is probably 5.7. Lots of holds, great beginner route. The holds are still a bit friable as the route is new. Well bolted except for a bit of easy runout at the top. Crux is getting to the first bolt but it's 5.7 max.
We didn't do the first but guessed it would go at 5.9 or so, and it has it's own set of anchors at the top. However those are not rap anchors and do not have chains. You'd likely have to leave something up there to pull your rope through it.
If the folks that put this up would like to add comments, and route names, that would be great!
