This is possibly a bit easier for taller climbers .10d /.11a.
Begin with cruxy climbing on small hand holds with ok feet to gain a hidden finger crack down and left of clip 1. Move to the second clip for a no hands rest at the start of the right curving crack. Follow the crack with good hands and foot holds that get smaller towards the third clip. Move to the closely spaced fourth bolt as the crack and crux turn straight up. Strenuous pulls and tricky feet block your way to the anchors.
Locate the wooden stairs across from the Feline Parking lot. This is the first route encountered.
4 clips to anchors.
You may want to stick clip the first bolt.

The guidebook seems to be quite off on many of these easier climbs. I have the 2008 edition and was climbing here today. I spent a lot of time studying the walls and tried to place every route as it goes with the book. It rated this climb as a 5.9, but it is now a 5.11. But hey, it's been 4 years. Just saying to be careful at Rifle if you're not a solid leader.
