Aerili thinks it must be Ultrawoman on some days.

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


This route is the 2nd bolted climb from the left. It follows a waterstreak to a ledge with a bolted anchor. There are eight bolts on the route, with 20 foot runouts on sandstone fiction slab near the top. Most of the rock is solid, but all of the edges are rounded. Classic...

Super killer route that is alot of fun, especially to take friends who have not climbed much slab and watch their faces! NOT nearly as scary or "R" rated as sometimes mentioned, maybe PG-13 at best as the crux moves have the bolts a wee bit closer, a little, kinda. This route AND speed racer are super fun!!

A cool route with fun friction moves. Well bolted except runout from last bolt to the rap anchors up and left. Need to 60m ropes for the rap

Takes the water streak up the middle of the face. 5.8 - a nice climb. 200ft rope barely makes it back to the boulder on the left of the start (facing crag).

What an outstanding climb. Nice little private place to climb at the first pullout. if you like slab this is the place. Ultraman is beautiful. If you have a 70m rope it ill be perfect for this wall, climbs are 100 + feet.

If you like this type of climbing, try kemosabe on the ragged edge wall in willow springs. Its a notch harder, but a great slab climb :)

On 11/27/09, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced 7 pro bolts on this route. The first bolt and the anchors were not replaced. The anchors have recently been replaced with 3/8" stud bolts. All new bolts are 1/2" x 2.75" stainless 5-pieces.

On 1/14/10, the LVCLC finished repair of this route by removing the final old pro bolt and the intermediate station that had formed as well as removing the remaining studs that were protruding from the rock.

This is a very scary route for a beginner 5.8 climber. Especially one who is unfamiliar with Slab.

I definitely got wanked out when I did it the first time.

I think it was mentioned, but I only saw 7 bolts. Not sure if I missed one somewhere, or if it doesn't exist anymore.

What a fun route. This is a killer wall, so much better than some of its chossy neighbors.

I think another poster mentioned this as well but Ultraman felt a little harder than the route to the left (Clutch Cargo)

A step up from Clutch Cargo (5.9, next route on climbers right). I'd call it PG-13 since there is nothing to hit if you come off, just some road rash.

Sustained and insecure. I could believe 5.9 or even 5.9+.

I understand the bolts were replaced in 2009/10. Great! When I did it (2006) my notes read: "More run out than "Clutch" and with older bolts."
