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


A surprisingly moderate and well-protected face climb that simply eats as much gear as you can throw at it for the first half, then steepens and follows three bolts to a spacious ledge and bolted anchor just left of Godzilla's. Quality rock for a Calico Hills first ascent.


Start with an mantel on black rock fifteen feet left of Godzilla's start to a shallow corner that takes gear. Follow good pro and intuition up fun features to a steeper, bolt-protected upper wall to anchors. We rapped Godzilla with a 70M since it seemed very possible that we wouldn't make the ground with a single line.


I used double cams from 00-.5 and found a set of offset brass to be useful in addition to a set of stoppers. Lots of slings are a good idea since pro is plentiful and zigzags a bit from crack to crack. I appreciated a red C3/green alien size piece near the top between the last two bolts.

Great climbing, bring lots of wires including micros. The top bolts don't have chains or rings, but the anchor of Godzilla is just a step to the right. 70m rope works for a rappel if you angle east (climber's right). Nov 17, 2016
