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).
Thin climbing up a corner with interesting body movement protected by small gear leads to a short thin hands crack that protects well. Continue on the left face and corner past a short run-out to more opportunities for gear. Then head on up to the last obstacle, an awkward left facing corner with good gear in the corner, that deposits you on a ledge. Although there are a couple of rests, the climbing is physical and engaging.
The pitch climbs above the second pitch anchor to No Laughing Matter and Serious Business.
I took doubles from .3 BD to 2, and a single 3 that was useful for the anchor. I also took metolius 00 to 1, a green alien and a small off-set. I took a set of nuts but not sure if I placed any. Because of a few short run outs, I doubled up on gear at a few points. With the bolts in place, I would image you could cut back by 25-35%. There are now five pro-bolts and a two bolt anchor on the top.
