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


A Multi-faceted face to the right of the Trundle Wall, between the first and second pullouts. The climbing is varied, ranging from slabby flakes to verical huecos to overhung crimping, all on mostly-bomber rock (cleaning up very nicely!). Faces straight south, and gets all day sun for most of the season.

Getting There 

From the First Pullout:
Take the trail to Calico II until there is a very clear option to descend into the little wash on the right (past the approach for the Panty Wall). Following the wash, you will shortly arrive at the Newcastle Crag (10 minutes from parking lot). Looking straight north (uphill) you will see a large broken wall with huge huecos. This is Iron Man Wall. 5 minutes of uphill scrambling brings you to the base.

This climb sits to the right and behind the Iron Man Wall, near the left edge of the Ultraman. The left hand bolted line, this climb follows the old KP addage: "the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but the easiest path wanders". You'll be wandering a bit on this one. Head up the obvious crack/break to where it goes horizontal, traverse left, and weave your way up the slab above. Bail right around the final vertical section, and clip those chains.

Great Wall for the 10 leader and 11a/b as well. Needs some more traffic to clean up. No one is ever there so expect a peaceful crag.

Removed the original two lower res beta pics I uploaded in favor of a high res version( the max MP currently allows) that includes both portions of the wall in a single image. Cheers.
