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).
P1 (5.10a, 90'): Begin left of center on the slab and climb easily to a first bolt, perform a mantle, then cruise all the way up to a bolted anchor. A single grey Alien or similar cam will protect an otherwise huge runout early on this pitch.
P2 (5.10b, 50'): Move up off the belay, clip a high bolt, step up to a roof and move awkwardly around it to the right. Chimney up the groove eventually reaching an anchor shared with the first pitch of Tongue and Groove.
P3 (5.10b, 140'): Tongue and Groove's second pitch. Continue up the corner less awkwardly. Ignore the anchor directly overhead and instead move out right through a scrub oak and belay at a bolted anchor set up for rappel.
Two rappels straight down with a single 80m rope (or two ropes) will get you back to the ground (watch your ends).
