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 interesting “adventure” sport route starts by climbing out of a chimney for maybe 25 feet of unprotected slab to the first bolt. Follow the bolts above to a three-bolt anchor. As of this writing, two biners offer a quick lower off, but one of them is on a bolt sticking about a quarter inch out of the rock; be prepared to deal with it. Rated 11b in Handren (II), the route is at least now at the high end of the 11 range (IMO) due, I suspect, to holds popping off (we had a key one blow). Suspect rock remains, but worth a go if all the other decent 11s in the area are booked – some cool movement, and the crux is super well protected and short. Name and FA info from Handren.
This is the next bolted route about 40 feet right of Footloose. Reach the base by scrambling up a short v-slot to a nice, sheltered ledge.
