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
Description"Slabing It" is the first route on the very left end of the wall. There are 14 bolted routes to the right of this one. This route is well protected with 8 bolts that lead pretty much straight up the wall to a two chain anchor. There are optional starts to this route, the crux being the lower half of the climb and then it gets very easy from there. Be aware the upper portion has some hollow flakes that can eaisly break if used for holds. Helmets are reccomended for both belayer and climber on this route as well all other routes on this wall.
LocationThis route is at the very left end of the wall and begins directly under the first set of chains that are visible. One can rappel or lower from the quick links.
