BETA PHOTO: Borat at the Funny Face, Rifle Mountain Park.
This route has great, clean stone on a steep face. Moderate climbing past the first few bolts leads to the difficult climbing in the middle to upper section of the climb with a few rests from from stances left of the bolt line or when stemming. After pulling past the last bolt, one final difficulty is encountered, clipping the anchor. The anchor is just out of reach from the good feet and one or two more moves have to be done to clip the chains. Some may not appreciate the bolt being well below their feet for these moves, but the fall is clean.
Borat is the furthest right route on the Funny Face, just right of a prominent tree next to the cliff, from which Rickles (5.7) starts on the left side. Look for the gray hangers.
8 bolts and anchor.
