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 is where there is a fun and burly couple of 5.9 moves. Look up and climb the steep headwall with decent hands on the right side of the wall, but with bad feet. After pulling these couple of burly moves, continue up on steep but positive holds until reaching the top.
Don't be fooled into stopping too short of the very top. Once reaching what seems to be a natural stopping point, if you fail to continue up and to the right on white rock towards what seems to be more of the true summit of Raptor Tower, you will be faced with some weird and difficult scrambling around some huge blocks to get to the top.
One may descend via rappel from the top of F-22 Raptor or via a fun and easy scramble which begins from the north side of the summit or raptor tower and winds back down the east face down to Eagle Ledge.
