Comments: This is an awesome climb at what the guidebook says is 110 ft to the top which is what I like to do. 5.9 to the big block at the top with a crux at the start and probably a 5.10- move at the top. There are anchors and the very top of the climb now. Highly recommended.

Comments: The guidebook seems to be quite off on many of these easier climbs. I have the 2008 edition and was climbing here today. I spent a lot of time studying the walls and tried to place every route as it goes with the book. It rated this climb as a 5.9, but it is now a 5.11. But hey, it's been 4 years. Just saying to be careful at Rifle if you're not a solid leader.

Comments: A great challenging climb, did this today and definitely agree with the 5.10 rating. I would put it at 5.10b especially considering the climb directly to the right is a 5.10b, and I think it is much easier. Lots of stemming of course and pinching.

Comments: This is a great climb, especially for beginners. I would rate it at 5.7, I've led this climb 6 times or so and feel it's great practice for gear placement and crack climbing. I usually take up larger gear from BD 0.75 to maybe even a 4 and a small nut. A must do for beginning trad leaders at No Name.

Comments: Good climbing with some interesting hand jams and foot work to boot. I felt like this climb was more of a 5.10, especially after climbing the 5.10 directly to the left of this (which actually turned out to be easier). My climbing partner agreed with a rating of 5.10. very fun climb.

Comments: Great climb for beginners to TR or even beginning leaders. It starts with some small handhold moves that will make you think, then climbs through a left-trending crack, and then moves to easy scrambling all the way to the top.

Comments: This is a great climb with some interesting moves, felt more like a 5.9 to me with an awkward flake in the middle of the climb.

Comments: This is a great crack climb with a lot of interesting moves on it. I would call this a 5.9+ for a few of the technical spots. Love this climb.

Comments: Lead this route today and couple friends followed it. This route is short and sweet and is a great route to take beginners on who may have a small fear of heights. Maybe 5.6 except for a couple little 5.7 holds.

Comments: Best description of this route I have seen. I climbed this route today, and it felt like a short, solid, 5.10+ holds become non-existent at the crux. All around short and sweet route. Oh and this route looks like it's Oscar was a dumpster junkie in the beta photo, but this is the description for it.
