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 route goes up cracks on right side of giant chimney/gully system to join Foolish Woman halfway up. Climb the ramp, staying left when in doubt. Pitch 2 continues up the ramp to a belay spot where the wall steepens. Pitch 3 goes up the varnished headwall until you can step right to the belay/rappel at the top of Fools Rush in Where Angels Fear to Tread. Alternatively, continue up and step left to join Foolish Man, Foolish Woman midway.
Scramble into the beginning of the gully at the base of Foolish Man, Foolish Woman, then step out right to set up the first belay by bushes at the base of a ramp system running up parallel to the chimney.
