Starting Rickles.


Start by the tree to gain the left trending crack. Great holds gets you to the first clip. Move up on more great holds past clip 2 and through the short headwall with somewhat harder moves to a stance. Move to left of the bulge using the flake with really good holds to the anchors.


This is the second route encountered if coming from the Feline Parking Lot which is the quickest approach of about 3 minutes. Rickles is right in front of the sawed off tree on the trail.

Start right in front of the tree.

Please be courteous to hikers!


8 clips to anchors.

Probably the easiest route in Rifle and one of the best 5.7s I know of.
