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).
Climb straight up the highly featured wall on surprisingly easy rock. Continue to another varnished headwall with a short clean jam crack in its lower right corner. Climb the jam crack and move up and left on crispy varnished holds with limited protection. Alternatively, climb the easier crack system above the jam crack.
From the ledge at the top, scramble (3rd class) up and right to the summit of the buttress and rappel off to the north. (A descent to the west into the gully behind the buttress is also possible immediately after topping out, but is not too pleasant and doesn't make it any easier to get back to your packs.)
