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).
Pitch 2) 5.10++ (or 5.9) head up the obvious OW. Those uncomfortable with #6 cracks may opt to bring one for a 12’ section of splitter 6’s. A low angle layback leads to a ledge. Step right and face climb up poorly protected moves to the obvious hand crack roof. The very strenuous roof puts you on a big ledge system. Alternatively exit left through the notch, avoiding the roof and keeping the grade at 5.9.
Descent: Head down and skiers right. The top of “Only the Good Die Young” is at the edge of the wall. Continue down this descent by switchbacking left across a steep slab. A short down scramble leads to a rap tree. A single 80’ rappel puts you back on the approach.
