This is pretty good for a "slabby" route. It climbs the inset V-groove one route right of Def Jam. Alternately, it is the first route left of the dirt-pile 5.10s and 11s, so the furthest route right on the Anti-Phil proper.
It climbs a prominent light-blue streak on nice stone, with bouldery cruxes and plenty of business up high to keep you on your toes.
A slappy boulder problem over the rooflet at the beginning (V4 or V5) leads to a series of hard moves to gain the groove. Continuous, strenuous climbing on crimps and pinches up the blue streak lead to tan rock and the anchors. This is a good, technical antidote to the thuggier climbing at Rifle.
Quickdraws and a 60-meter rope.
