Access Issue: 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).
A quality, powerful climb. Start on a right hand crimp and left hand sidepull which are difficult to reach if you're short. The sit start, from low crimps, goes at V9. The problem faces away from the wash.
The easiest way to approach this boulder is by following the same approach to Oak Creek Canyon and staying above and right of the wash. When you are nearing the start of the short, red cliff band on your right, you should see a large boulder directly right of the trail (see pic). On the opposite side of the trail (left), the top of the Get Moist is visible through the trees. It is also possible to hike up the wash until you the boulder comes up on your right, but you can't see the problem from the wash. GPS 36.10249, -115.48324
