You know that saying, "The Few, The Proud, The Marines?" There are few link-ups at Red Wing, and Godzilla is one of the proudest. Well, Godzilla and the sickness known as The Future. :)

Beginning on Last Dance of the Fat Man and ending on Pretty in Pink, Godzilla features big moves between positive crimps. Godzilla climbs the first two bolts of Fat Man and then veers left and upward (crux). The fourth bolt marks the end of the difficulties. It also marks the entrance into the exciting land of Chossdom. Tread lightly on those shattered edges and crumbling huecos, hombre. And be sure to check out those bomber anchors at the top.

I recommend working "Last Dance " first, then doing this after the bottom is dialed. Crimp crimp crimp then a big throw to a ledge and its over. Like Randy says, careful on-the. top
