Space Chimp

5.10, Sport, 50 ft (15 m),  Avg: 2.8 from 18 votes
FA: Steve Hattenbach & Karl Kiser, Spring 2010
New Mexico > Truth or Conseq… > Red Rock Arroyo > Luna Park > E Side > Northwest Passage
Access Issue: Oct. 12, 2020 - Temporary Area Closure Order issued for Forest Service Road 225 (mile 22.6 to 22.9) Details


Climb pumpy bulge down low to technical upper face. Be careful between the third and forth bolts (another bolt may be added to protect the harder climbing on the crimps). A first lead on the route can be safer by going left to the large flake prior to clipping the forth bolt.


The left end of the clean face, north of The Right Stuff.

[Hide Comment] This route was great fun. A pumpy crux on bomber holds down low, with a nice rest ledge before the vertical headwall above, which has some nice crimpers. Mar 30, 2011

[Hide Comment] There is a TR right of Space Chimp to the same anchor (about 5.11/5/11+). The upper smooth face is harder than the lower overhanging section. May 7, 2016
