All climbs are on the east side of the the canyon.
That means a.m. shade with p.m. sun.

Conditions
Winter: Cold
Spring: Seeps, but will dry out some with sun.
Summer: Shade until early afternoon.
Fall: Like Summer, but not as hot.

There is now a Porta-potty at the Feline parking lot. Thank You, City of Rifle!

Getting There 

Drive into RMP and locate the Koper's/ Ice Caves trail/ Wasteland parking lot on the left, just past the small bridge.
Continue for 0.3 mile to the Feline parking lot on the left at the bend in the road.
There is room for about 8 cars here.
Please park head in only.

CAUTION: Cars sometime speed up and down this section of the Canyon!

Access:
There are two sections to this area.

This trail meets the wall at the climb Sheehan.

My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Momma 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  CO : Rifle Mountain Park : G3
Move up to clip the high first bolt on easy, but don't fall climbing. Some sustained climbing through the fifth clip will get you to an unfortunate, dirty break in the climb that offers you a rest and time to look at the climbing through last 2 clips. Cruise the upper headwall with 2 reachy lefty clips to the anchors.This climb did have lowering biners but someone needed them more than the people that climb this route did....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
