RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Description

Easy slab climbing on the left side of the Ultraman Wall. The first bolt line to the left of Clutch Cargo. Its a good warm up for the rest of the wall.
Like the rest of the wall, it is a little run out between the bolts but you're not going to hit the ground anywhere.

Location

Ultraman wall about 60 feet left of Clutch Cargo.
You can lower off or rap with a 70 meter rope or hike to the left end of the wall to the gully.

Protection

7 bolts to the top and good anchors with chains.

Returned to Ultraman Wall yesterday for first time in many years as I wanted to check out the recent "modifications" to Scent of an Ultraman. Almost 20 "enhanced" holds have changed the route forever. I removed the 3 new bolts and patched the holes. If the 3 new additional bolts were the only modification, I probably wouldn't have bothered to remove them. But now, the route is likely more 5.6 than 5.7...and will be forever. Down low on the route, there are enhanced holds on 5.4-5.5 terrain. Damn. Shame. Jan 13, 2016

Drilled Vandalism

If the person who did this sees this, we would all appreciate it if you did not use power tools to modify the rock on any existing route, or any new route. It is one of the highest precepts of climbing to take the rock as it exists and work to be up to the challenge it presents, no matter what the grade. If you are interested in route development, please let me know and I will put you in touch with those who can teach you how to properly install a route. Jan 3, 2016
Really fun climb. Except for the chipped holds. Someone VERY recently (still lots of dust around) did some of the most heinous chipping I've ever seen in almost 40 years of climbing. On a 5.7? WTF? Appears to be done with a power drill, from the messy peck marks around the chiseled holds.

Some bolts on this route appeared to be very new, so same drill may have placed (replaced?) these and chiseled holds at the same time? Dec 27, 2015

Be careful with the first two bolts. After that your good to go. Getting to the first two bolts is easier climbing but mentally tough. Amazing climb. Apr 26, 2013

Fun slabby climb, 70m rope gives you just enough to get down. Tops out at the little cave. Oct 25, 2012
