Comments: I'm sure this is a great route, but not for a warm up and a first time lead in the Voo. This was my 3rd trad lead ever and it was a big wake up call. The run outs between my last piece and the bolt tested me a bit but the 30 feet above the bolt to the anchors was wiggie. I wasn't crying like a baby but I do remember kissing the ground when I got down. :)
Comments: Wow what a place!!! I spent my first weekend at Rifle and it was fantastic. It's definitely not for the weak of heart or the weak in body. If you want to be a stronger sport climber this is a great place to visit.
The other great thing about Rifle is the people. I love the climbing community but the dedicated climbers at Rifle are top notch. I felt so welcome and everyone was so friendly. Thanks to everyone for making my first (and not my last) Rifle experience awesome.
