Description 

Goofy Foot climbs more like a fussy trad route than a Rifle sport climb. You'll probably fall because your foot slips -- not because you're pumped!

Goof Foot climbs the hanging, right-facing dihedral in the left-center portion of the Project Wall, ending at chain anchors at a diagonal break about 60 feet up, over a bulge. It is two routes left of Simply Read, one route right of Present Tense.

Start on the far right side of the conglomerated rubble heap, yarding on embedded rocks to stand up on a little ledge and clip the first bolt. Move up past deep pockets and good incuts to the base of the corner. An initial crux involves a sideways traverse on improbable holds (stay low!). This is capped off with some of the weirdest, sleaziest, sickest, stemmiest climbing in Rifle. A pumpy finishing bulge takes you to the chains, which are shared by Strange Ranger (13d).

This is a pretty cool route in a bizarre, only-climb-it-once sort of way. It was originally rated 12d, and while the grade has slowly crept up to 13b, it's still a stiff tick.
