Some friends and I put up over 20 routes in this zone in the mid-'90s to early '00s. I'll upload our topos once I find them, but we called it the Pump House Crag, and it's filled with splitter finger cracks and Red Rocks style face climbs. If you live the area, you'll have to check it out; and if you're on your way to the Creek, it's worth a stop! Great camping too.

Is that the crag with Arm and Hammer? The Red Rock Simulator?

Ian is your email address still the same?

Yeah, John. This is the Red Rocks Simulator Wall, home to Arm and Hammer and the Rizala's Crack. Someone added a random bolt near the top "Arm and Hammer"...noticed it a couple of years back. Reminds me of our hand-drilling, first ascent forays every time I lead it. It's still "yikes" all the way to the anchor.

I heard that several of the routes I put up have had bolts added. I hear that arete that Clay and I did, without any bolts, at Loitter Land is now a clip up and has been renamed, too.
