The Meat Wall is one of the busiest sections of rock in Rifle as the terrain is closer to vertical, and therefore some of the more moderate routes are located here. Two of the more popular warm-ups 80 feet of Meat, and Cold Cuts are here and these two routes usually have a line at the base in the morning. The wall is located across from the Ruckman Cave and extends down the road a bit. A good number of 5.11 and 5.12 routes can be found on this wall. Look for the above two routes, as well as Le Specimen (5.12c), Crime and Punishment (5.12a), and Cardinal Sin (5.12a). Many of the popular routes here tend to have very polished feet, so be happy you have sticky rubber. Wall gets morning shade, evening sun.

Getting There 

Park in the 8 car pullout at 1.3 miles. The Meat Wall is directly across the road, with Cold Cuts and 80 Feet of Meat being 30 feet up the road. The rest of the routes are found just down from the parking pullout.
