The Project Wall is Rifle's most public crag, sitting literally 5 feet off the road at one of the deepest, narrowest bends in the canyon. If you don't mind a bit of road noise, gawking tourists and occasional crowding on the "warm-ups" then this wall, which towers a whopping 200+ feet above the road, is well worth a visit. Most the of the climbs tackle direct (straight-up) lines on blue and grey water streaks, while a central cave offers some of the steepest and hardest routes in Rifle. Don't miss classics include: Rehabilitator (11c), Defenseless Betty (12a), Hang 'Em High (12b), Apocalypse '91 (13b), The Eighth Day (13a) and Simply Read (13d).
The Project Wall sits about two miles up the canyon on the right and is hard to miss. It is as roadside as Rifle gets.

Defenseless Betty 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a CO : Rifle Mountain Park : Project Wall
Defenseless Betty is another great Project Wall route. Stiff for the grade, it is all of 11d. Work up through the overhang just left of Hang 'Em High, climbing through the low roofs. Finish up the steep groove on great stone. It has technical moves to the end....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
