RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details
Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN RED ROCKS during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby. ***** HUMAN WASTE ***** Human waste is one of the major issues plaguing Red Rocks. The Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council identified this problem years ago and has worked to provide "wag bags" free of charge 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 areas). This project was funded primarily by the American Alpine Club
DescriptionA 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.
LocationBetween 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.
ProtectionAll 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.
