Description 

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.

Featured Route For Meat Wall
Rich starting up Cardinal Sin (5.12a).

Cardinal Sin 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ E5 6a  CO : Rifle Mountain Park : Meat Wall
Cardinal Sin is another fantastic line that takes on a more vertical section of rock (at least by Rifle standards). This route is 40 yards down the road from 80 Feet of Meat and starts with the first couple of bolts on homemade hangers. This route climbs through a crazy sequence of underclings that is very cool and follows this with a thin, non-positive crux sequence. Keep climbing fast through here and the going will get easier. A long draw may be nice for shorter people in the crux. Highly ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
