Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details


This is the first route on the left. It follows 7 bolts on good varished edges. This route is the best protected route on the wall. It felt easier than the 5.8's to the right. The climbing is fun and can be done with a single 60M rope.


7 bolts


New guide says this is 5.7? Anyone else think this? I thought the other 5.7 (scent of an Ultraman) seemed easier. Maybe this is 5.8? I dunno......slabby. Feb 15, 2006

New guide is wrong. Old guide said 5.9, and that's what most think. Feb 15, 2006

I call it 5.9... when I climbed it it was nearly 100 degrees out, my feet were screaming/sliding all over the place, and I went home with a wicked sunburn... hence, not my favorite wall! =) Apr 20, 2006

Got on this with the 5.7 rating (new guide book) in mind, and just though Red Rock Slabs are sandbagged or that I'm a slab weenie (which I am). The climb is fun, long, and has a bolt when you need it. Nov 27, 2006
the farthest left route on the slab is "Scent of an Ultraman"..a Limage line ..black hangers..5.7 ish...mayb.. Single 60 M will leave you with some easy downclimbing on the rap. Dec 21, 2006

Here is my 2 cents on the ratings fiasco on Ultraman Wall. The new Limage route on the far left is certainly the easiest on the wall IMHO. I would give it about 5.7-. Clutch Cargo is in no way as hard as Ultraman and Speed Racer so I would put it at about 5.8- at best. Ultraman and Speed Racer are super fun and I think the only grades pretty correct or close around 5.8+ish?? Clutch Cargo also has all the bolts right where you best need them so no sweat, enjoy the route and go for it! Just my worthless 2 cents..:) Jan 3, 2007

Not 5.9 - I agree with the 5.7 rating. IMHO the best of the routes on this wall. Nice sequential and steep start to a ledge then very sustained slabbing up to a somewhat dubious open cold shut and closed shut anchor. Apr 15, 2007

The climb is about identical to Ultraman so I go with 5.8+. I suggest you bypass the anchors (loose bolt on the open cold shut) and move right to Ultraman's anchors. Oct 14, 2007

On 11/27/09, the ASCA replaced the anchor bolts on this route- the old shuts were replaced with 1/2" x 2.75" stainless 5 piece bolts and mussy hooks for rappelling. Nov 27, 2009

I don't know where people are getting the 5.7 from, this is sustained at the 8+/9 grade. The start itself is harder than .7. Don't get suckered. I had to throw for a hold and I'm 5'10". Good climb though. Dec 24, 2014
