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
DescriptionTwo pitches of fun climbing capped by a delightfully long left facing corner.
P1: Fifth class up a slightly mossy start directly under the route. Sporty moves down low get you started.
P2: The start is a bit spooky on perfect varnish. Another sporty section that protects and climbs nicely.
P3: Long pitch. Perfect rock. Cruise (or struggle) past some wide sections. Savor the slightly intimidating stretch of perfect fingers. Then jam your way through various sizes to the anchor.
LocationRoute goes up the large left facing corner that defines the right side of the Cauldron wall.
Rap with one 70 meter rope. On the first rap descend climber's left to anchors on The Regatta. Easy to get too. Continue down The Regatta. Down climb a bit after last rap.
