This is a recent addition to Rifle's short list of 5.10s, but it is a good one at that. It is just right of PMS, up on the dirt mound above the Nappy Dugout (Shit Cave) and climbs the aesthetic orange wall capped by a small roof band.

Start this well-protected route by ambling up the slabby, grey stone to the base of the orange wall. Engaging moves on incut sidepulls, funky horns, and good crimps lead to a crux sequence moving left to the anchors. In-situ lowering biners get you back to the ground.

This route is catching on fast, so do it before it gets all slimed out.


8-10 draws.

I thought this route was actually called "Squawk Box"?
