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).
This climb runs up the crack, but being Red Rock you end up using the crack for protection and face holds and huecos to ascend. The rock is bomber, the pro is solid. The one short section of white rock runout is far below the grade.
It's steep, straightforward route finding, and ends above a nice roof pull.
Originally this line was climbed to the top in 7 pitches, ending just below Luxor Wall at dusk. We took in one of the best views in the park. Then we rapped out looking like a couple of Aye-Ayes. Oh, and I had 1 hillarious looking Finger.
You should just climb the 1st pitch and rap/top rope. You're probably not ready to go all the way.
After passing Little Britches either climb the giant boulder, tunnel directly under, or take scrambling path right and around.
