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
DescriptionAn Aye-Aye is a confused looking creature you may find in the Jungle at night. It is the largest nocturnal primate and has 1 hillarious looking finger.
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.
LocationLeftmost crack in a very obvious alcove of chimneys.
After passing Little Britches either climb the giant boulder, tunnel directly under, or take scrambling path right and around.
