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

Description

A fun line, technical and thin down low, airy and mellow as the route goes on. Name inspired by the 1968 film in which all the Godzilla-era monsters become controlled by an all-female alien race and destroy major cities before battling each other. A safe line and the most technically difficult on the wall, this was a ground-up line bolted onsight on a cloudy winter day and put up with the intent to show that quality sport lines can be put up in good style and still be an adventure to establish.

Location

Between Godzilla and Rodan, start is easy to find since it's a red, smooth, blank-looking corner with a low red bolt. Rappel and TR with an 80 meter rope or use two ropes.

Protection

All bolts on this one, and the only climb on the wall that could really be considered a sport climb. Distances between bolts are more in keeping with standard Red Rock canyon routes than the brain-melting fare close by on the older Ultraman lines. Ground fall would be near-impossible once the first bolt is clipped, though an attentive spot is a good idea since the start feels bouldery. The safest route on the wall, all told. 10 red camoed bolts to anchor.
