RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

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.

80M rope allows TR, if you have a single 70, hijinks or a quick traverse right to the anchors of Rodan will allow you to get down.

I really want to stress that a 70 does not make this happen as a TR, and rappelling is only possible by swinging over a significant amount. Knot your rope ends and pay attention. It's a long pitch.

Chains added 11/8/2014. A 70m rope will get you down if you bear right about 25 feet, uphill.
