Comments: This pic was helpful, and the trail was well-cairned. Thanks!

Comments: Maybe it was just my head today, but the spaces between the second and third to last bolts felt a little sporty. However, it's pretty easy going, there are a few spots for Aliens/stoppers, and you're probably not as much of a wuss as me.

Comments: I only found two bolts on this. We went to the top, placing a few pieces on the way, then traversed to the anchors on Touch Monkey. It made the whole endeavor safe, but a bit perplexing.

Comments: This climb was fun, but a little more than average dirty/crumbly towards the middle and top.

Comments: Note about a few of the new "moderate" routes at Rifle:

Canine Wall: According to splitterchoss.com, these were bolted by people from Climbing magazine. There are several climbs at 11a and below. While the sentiment is good, the execution is less so. Not enough cleaning was done, so there is alot of lichen and stuff, but more troubling is that there is a "a lot" of loose rock on these climbs.

For example, on Stem-o-Rama, the bottom two bolts are through a dirty garden-like area, with the only... more >>

Comments: I went left at the top (not the fork at the low anchors, the upper fork) and found it both tricky and strenuous...clipping the last bolt was very balance-y from the stance I found. I thought it substantially harder than 11b done that way. I didn't try the right-upper fork, but the guide said it was a tad easier...

Comments: I thought this climb was a lot better than 2 stars, especially for the area. Had I heeded the quality rating from here, I'd likely not have tried it. Try it!

The lieback/undercling is quite fun. True, the top is relatively easy, but it's kind of pleasant stemming and stepping.

Comments: I concur with the above comment. Dirty, and the bottom is sort of silly, climbing next to a gully. Also, though the above headwall is fun, there's an unpleasantly hollow large flake at the beginning.

Comments: I found the small runout after the second-to-last bolt (the one over the roof) to be the psychological crux. you have to make some moves above the bolt to get to the clipping jug for the next, with a possibly awkward fall. It was a hot day, though, so the hands felt a bit slimy.

Comments: I found the moves past the 1st bolt to be pretty strenuous, made more so by the dirt and scale on much of the rock. Seemed hard for 11a, but then I backed off after the second bolt...maybe it ends up climbing better past that.

Comments: This route is the cleanest of the bunch in this section. Seemed safe, and was pretty fun.

Comments: Pretty gritty, with some questionable rock at mid height (large hollow-sounding flake), and also at the top. Bears some resemblance to fun, but certainly not 4 stars.

Comments: I second the heads up on the loose rock. A couple of foot holds disintegrated as I was traversing into the bigger stuff to the left. Several flakes flex, and there seems to be a largish area of hollow and scaly rock to the left of the crack that ends in the bigger stuff. If it received a serious exfoliation, it might be worth it.

Comments: This route can be a bit of a pain to TR, or to lower off. the crack about a foot left of the 4th (last) bolt can snag your rope quite well. A very short draw here (or a biner) will keep the rope from getting snagged.

The rest of it was fun.

Comments: This climb was pretty fun. The good climbing outweighed the several rests/easy climbing interludes.

I was quite confused by the 12a extension...I was on the crimps at/below the anchors, but didn't see any other features for quite some time...and no chalk to help out a bad onsight-er like myself. I'd like to know where people went.

Comments: Fun. Watch for loose rock in the rottenish band below the roof. The roof is fun for 9+.

Comments: This route is pretty fun, but the above description doesn't really describe the questionable nature of the rock in places, especially at the crux at bolt 5. The undercling/enormous flake you're yarding (and presumably heel-hooking on) is "really" hollow. Apparently, it's solid, but I had to hang there a bit before I trusted it. It's big, and it coming off would be Bad for you and those below. I ended up going right so I didn't have to pull really hard on it.

Also, the huecoed upper roof is i... more >>
